National Strategy for the prevention of pregnancy in adolescents in Honduras

The Ministry of Health, which is committed to what was established in the Nation Plan and Country Vision, acknowledges pregnancy in adolescents as a priority which requires a strategic, comprehensive and urgent approach.

To reduce the high levels of pregnancy in adolescents, it is vital to improve the lives of women, families and society in general. To respond to this situation the Ministry of Health through the Program of Comprehensive Attention for Adolescents develops inter-sector and inter-program tasks and presents the National Strategy for the Prevention of Pregnancy in Adolescents (ENAPREAH) which defines the community and institutional actions that must be implemented to contribute to diminish this important health problem.
