Emulating England’s Success on Teen Pregnancy

A program that successfully halved England's teen pregnancy rate will now serve as a blueprint for similar efforts around the world.

According to England’s Office for National Statistics, 23 out of every 1,000 women under 18 became pregnant in England and Wales in 2014, compared with 47 out of 1,000 in 1998.

The program’s long-game strategy and multi-agency approach, with work carried out in schools and colleges, caught the WHO’s eye. The agency asked Alison Hadly, who led the program, to share its lessons with other countries.
