Teenage pregnancies remain a serious problem in Tanzania. It is estimated that at the age of seventeen or of eighteen 39%, of all females are either pregnant or already mothers

About one in 20 girls in Tanzania began child-bearing at the age of 15 years, and this rises sharply to one in four among 17 year olds. Girls in rural areas are almost twice as likely as girls in urban areas to start childbearing before they reach 19 years. More than half of girls with no education are mothers or pregnant before they reach 19 years, compared with about 25 per cent of those who completed primary school and less than five per cent of girls who attended secondary school.
