The Teenage Pregnancy Report provides insights into the economic and social burden of teenage pregnancies in Uganda. The Report indicates that the teenage pregnancy rate is high and rising with more than 30,000 teenage girls getting pregnant each month in 2021 (over 1,000 daily).

Teenage pregnancies decrease household incomes and jeopardize the country’s strategy for achieving a demographic dividend.
