Early Marriage Has Consequences for Development

Fifty-eight million girls in developing countries were child brides in the last decade. This PRB ENGAGE Snapshot highlights the consequences that early marriage can have for girls, such as poor health outcomes and lost opportunities for education and empowerment. But effective strategies to address early marriage do exist and can help millions of girls fulfill their potential and contribute to the development of their families and communities.
