  • Young women who avoid unintended pregnancy are much more likely to stay in school & participate in the workforce?
  • Pregnancy and birth complications are the leading cause of death among girls aged 15-19 in low-& mid-income nations?
  • In developing countries, only 22% of girls aged 15-19 who are married or in a union use contraceptives?

Today is World Population Day. This year’s theme is ending teen pregnancy.  To learn more, go to USAID at http://www.usaid.gov/what-we-do/global-health/worldpopday2013 or follow #wordpopday on Twitter https://twitter.com/search/realtime?q=%23worldpopday&src=typd.
