National Population Council declares war on teenage pregnancy

The Chief Executive of the National Population Council, Dr. Leticia Appiah, has called for a relentless war against teenage pregnancy as a way of managing Ghana’s population structure.

She said 14% of the teenage pregnancy rate in Ghana as compared to 2% in developed countries is worrying as it has a negative impact on the quality of life of citizens and the country’s socio-economic development.

Dr. Appiah spoke on the sidelines of a meeting between the National Population Council and the Parliamentary Caucus on Population.

Dr. Appiah said with intense and sustained advocacy, people will be able to appreciate issues about childbirth.
