Adolescents that range between the age of ten years to 19 years face a period of physical psychological and social changes that are often not understood by adults and the adolescents themselves who lack skills to cope with the challenges.
Some statistics show worrying trends of early pregnancies among girls as by the age of 17 years, 43.3% have had their 1st pregnancy and by 19years over 70.8% have had their first pregnancy. This has raised the attention of Byidi to adopt intervention/preventive programmes through health talks and counseling sessions with a team of health professionals to empower adolescents with knowledge and awareness to enable them make informed choices.
