Report of the 1st symposium on teenage pregnancy in Uganda

Future Health Systems

Every year, the ministry of Health (MoH) commemorates the Safe Motherhood week in October. The national commemoration this year (October 2013) was held in Apac district in Northern Uganda. As part of the events for the week, MoH and its partners held a symposium on the theme: Teenage pregnancy an obstacle to maternal health; let us stop it now!”. This report therefore contains proceedings of this symposium that attracted safe motherhood partners from across the country.

Teenage pregnancy is a major issue for maternal health and partners in the area of reproductive health came together in this symposium to share their experiences and most importantly to discuss how they could individually and collectively make better progress in addressing the challenge of teenage pregnancy.

In this report you will find discussions and useful insight on the problem of teenage pregnancy, its magnitude in Uganda, as well as the interventions that are being undertaken. You will also find challenges to its control as well as recommendations by different stakeholders on what needs to be done to tackle the problem in a more effective way.
