Report on unintended pregnancies and HIV among adolescents and young people in Homabay county released

We are proud to have hosted and facilitated the study on Unintended pregnancies and HIV among adolescents and young people – A situation analysis of Homa Bay, Kenya. The study was conducted in partnership with ODI, Homabay county and UNICEF.

This study looks at drivers of unintended pregnancy, HIV and violence among adolescents
in Homa Bay County, Kenya, where teenage pregnancy is 33% for those age 15–19 and where
youth aged 15–24 contribute 13% of the total number of HIV infections (among 15–49 year olds).

Annually, approximately 21 million girls aged 15 to 19 become pregnant in developing countries, of which approximately 12 million give birth. Over 700,000 births are recorded among adolescent girls younger than 15. Poverty and lack of education and employment opportunities in marginalised communities are common drivers for adolescent pregnancies. Homa Bay County has a very high prevalence of adolescent pregnancies, ranking second in Kenya.
