Early marriages, adolescent and young pregnancies


  
Abstract

  In January 2012, the Executive Board at its 130th session considered an earlier version of this report. The present report has been modified to reflect a request by Board Members to include references to the linkages between early marriages and pregnancies and progress towards the health related Millennium Development Goals, in particular towards Goal 5 (Improve maternal health), 4 (Reduce child mortality), 6 (Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases), 2 (Achieve universal primary education) and 3 (Promote gender equality and empower women) (Extract).
