NI concern over teen mums

13th May 2008

Patricia Lewsley, the children's commissioner, has said that Northern Ireland's sexual health services for young people must be improved.


She said the number of teenage mothers - 142 in 2007 - was "too high" and there had been an increase in the number of sexually-transmitted infections in young people. "There is no education or information for many of these young people in whatever arena they are in," she added.
