Teenage pregnancy declines in Akatsi South municipality

The municipality recorded 301 teenage pregnancy cases in 2022 compared to 339 in 2021

Statistics from the Akatsi South municipal health directorate has shown that the municipality recorded a slight decrease in teenage pregnancy cases in 2022.

Justine Sefakor Alornyo, the Akatsi South municipal director of health, shared this data at the municipal annual health performance review for 2022.

Alornyo said the figures remain a worry and that all must join hands to change the narrative “as it may be girls aged 11-14 years who were getting pregnant.”

In a remark, Alornyo called on the Akatsi South Municipal Assembly, other organisations and individuals to help to equip the health facilities with resources for their smooth running “since all health facilities in the municipality including the main hospital had equipment challenges.”

She outlined some activities carried out by the directorate over the period including radio discussions on health issues, community-stakeholder engagements, social mobilisation, collaborative activities, report validation, celebration of health days, training workshops, supportive supervision and monitoring.
