Turning Point

Adolescent girls and women aged 15 to 24 make up 75 percent of youth infected with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.

If present trends continue, 142 million girls will marry over the next decade. That’s over 38,000 girls married every day for the next 10 years.

Pregnancy is consistently among the leading causes of death worldwide for adolescent girls aged 15 to 19.

Girls who marry before 18 are more likely to experience domestic violence than their peers who marry later.

Educating adolescent girls is a critical factor in increasing the age of marriage in developing countries.
