CSIS Report Examines Adolescent Pregnancy, Maternal Mortality In Nicaragua

Center for Strategic & International Studies: Addressing Adolescent Pregnancy and Maternal Mortality in Nicaragua
In this report, Katherine Bliss, senior associate (non-resident) with the CSIS Global Health Policy Center and Americas Program, writes about her “recent trip to examine Nicaragua’s immunization programs in the context of support from Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. … But as she sought to situate what she learned about immunization programs within the broader context of maternal and child health in Nicaragua, the author was struck by the number of adolescent girls who become pregnant at a very young age and considered what implications this may have for the health outlook of Nicaragua’s newest families” (3/3).
