Action needed on teenage pregnancy

14th December 2010

The Teenage Pregnancy Independent Advisory Group has warned that financial cuts and health service restructuring could lead to an increase in teenage pregnancies. 

The number of pregnancies to girls under the age of 18 has fallen to its lowest number since 1990. Gill Frances, TPIAG chairman, said: "We warn government that teenage pregnancy rates will rise again unless there is sustained commitment and investment in contraceptive services, along with better sex and relationships education."
