Across the developing world, some 70 million girls under the age of 18 are married. Most of these girls have been taken out of school, are pregnant or parenting, and face a greater risk of being a victim of gender-based violence and contracting sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. While we know of their risks, there is much that we do not know about the daily lives of these girls or how to better meet their health care needs. 

Join USAID’s Office of HIV/AIDS, the International Center for Research on Women, CARE, and Pathfinder International as they present findings on their work with married adolescent girls living in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, West Africa, and other low-resource regions.
