    Joining Voices: No More Early Pregnancies

    ‘No More Early Pregnancies’  conveys a story of adolescent girls and teenage pregnancies.  Many adolescents in Benin are sexually active and require Comprehensive Sexual Education and choice of Family Planning methods.  The film reveals the challenges women face in accessing rights-based family planning in a country where 35% of adolescents between the age of 15-19 years have unmet need for family planning.  In the film, adolescents along with health workers organise a public campaign to ask for free access to contraceptives that is one of the major pledges that the Benin government made at the Family Planning Summit in London (2012).

    We encourage you to show this film to policymakers in your country to make the case for increased investment in family planning.
