Here’s Department of Health’s Public Service Reminder on Teen Pregnancy.

According to this report of Inquirer, teenage pregnancy is fast becoming one of the national issues in the country.

Recent (2014) data from the Philippine Statistical Authority (PSA) reveal that every hour, 24 babies are delivered by teenage mothers. According to the 2014 Young Adult Fertility and Sexuality (YAFS) study, around 14 percent of Filipino girls aged 15 to 19 are either pregnant for the first time or are already mothers—more than twice the rate recorded in 2002.
