Teenage pregnancy prevention framework published

Public Health England and the Local Government Association have published a Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Framework, with the aim of supporting young people to ‘prevent unplanned pregnancies and develop healthy relationships’. Despite the under-18 pregnancy rate falling by over 55% in the last 15 years, there are still inequalities around the country, with a six-fold difference in rates between local authorities. The framework is designed to help local areas asses their local programmes to see what is working well, to identify any gaps and to maximise services to strengthen the prevention pathway.
