Progress in Reducing Adolescent Childbearing in Ghana: A PRB ENAGAGE Snapshot

Adolescent childbearing remains high in many countries around the world, putting millions of girls at risk for poor health and development outcomes. However, some countries have demonstrated it is possible to reduce adolescent childbearing over time by investing in policies and programs to improve young people’s sexual and reproductive health. Using Trendalyzer—a software program that converts traditional graphs into interactive animations—this ENGAGE Snapshot explores the association between the adolescent fertility rate and the gross national income (GNI) per capita in Ghana. In addition, it examines how adolescent fertility rates vary by income level.
