Author
Organization
Abstract
For over 1·8 billion young people, access to contraceptives is key for health, rights, population and development, empowerment and equity, and for the planetary health of the future world. Adolescents make up at least a third of the population in most low-income and middle-income countries in Africa, Latin America, and Asia,1 where approximately 2·5 million births occur annually to girls under the age of 16 years.
