We are proud to partner with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Population Services International to fund a new approach to adolescent reproductive health. We are making this commitment to help improve the lives and health of thousands of young women.
Adolescents 360 is a $30 million joint-investment to fund modern contraceptive use and reduce unplanned pregnancy among young girls aged between 15-19 in Ethiopia, Tanzania and Nigeria. It will fund programs developed by young people, for young people that respond to adolescents’ specific needs in obtaining contraceptives. Pregnancy at such a young age, robs girls of the chance to live her healthiest and most productive life. In low- and middle-income countries, pregnancy complications is a leading cause of death for teenage girls.
