From our colleagues at Women Deliver
Every year, 14–16 million adolescent girls aged 15 to 19 give birth, and pregnancy-related deaths are the leading cause of death for girls this age. Young people are being directly affected by maternal mortality, and Women Deliver aspires to assist these young people as they advocate for their own reproductive health and rights. To provide inspiration and information for young people in their advocacy and awareness-raising efforts, Women Deliver is excited to announce that the “Youth Guide to Action on Maternal Health” has been revised and is available for download. Originally launched at Women Deliver 2010 as a component of the Youth Pre-Conference, this toolkit has been used by young leaders around the world to learn more and get involved in maternal health in their own communities.
