KENYA TEENAGE PREGNANCY CRISS

A crisis occasioned by the Covid19 pandemic is looming in Kenya where more than 28 school going girls are becoming pregnant daily. 

In a report by the Kenya Health Information System a total of 3,964 girls aged 19 and below become young mothers. This number comes from Machakos County with indications of a bigger number nationwide. 

The cases peaked in March at the onset of Covid19 lockdown measures where government officials noticed a huge jump.

This worrying trend has been linked to parents from urban areas dropping off their children at their rural homes.

Cases of gender based violence has seen a sharp rise globally at the height of Covid19 counter measures with the United Nations sounding an alarm for government to act on this unfolding issue.
