Mexico ranks no. 1 for teen pregnancies among the 34 member countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). 6 out of 10 of those conceived around age 14 as a result of either sexual violence or a lack of access to contraceptives. Approximately 31% of adolescents aged between 15 and 19 have had sexual relations, but not responsibly: 56% of those cases resulted in pregnancies. A 2014 survey revealed that 44.5% of partners in that same age group used no contraceptive in their first sexual encounter. In addition, according to the United Nations Population Fund, Latin America is the only region in the world with an ascending trend in teenage pregnancy!
CEDEJO's pregnancy prevention programs help educate youth so that they are better able to manage their sexuality and gives them access to affordable birth control. CEDEJO programs are vital to countering youth pregnancies.
