OUR CONCERN

ARE THE ADOLESCENTS

Who are Adolescents?

WHO defines adolescent as a person between 10-19 years of age. It is the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood.

  • There are about 1.2 billion adolescents worldwide.
  • A fifth of the world’s population
  • 4 out of 5 live in developing countries
  • 70% of Nigeria population are young people

FAHPAC’s main concern

More than 1 billion young people are entering the reproductive years, that’s the largest generation in history. Unfortunately, they are not adequately empowered with facts to make informed decisions about their health and right particularly their reproductive health. This gap results to serious consequences on their reproductive health. Some of which are stated below;

  • More than 14million young women give birth each year
  • Between 40% and 58% of sexual assaults are committed against girls aged 15 and younger
  • Maternal mortality ratio is 576/100,000 live birth,
  • 59% of these women are between 15-49 years
  • 56% of the death are caused by unsafe abortion

Under-20 girls make up 70% of hospitalization from (unsafe) abortion issues.
