Child Brides

Saira Shameem, UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund) | Shareena Sheriff, Sisters in Islam

12-Jul-16 18:00

Child

Early marriage and forced marriage is most common in South Asia and West and Central Africa. Every year, an estimated two million girls give birth before they turn 15. Young girls face the greatest risk of complications from pregnancy and childbirth - yet they are often invisible in statistics and excluded from development interventions. We delve into the issues with our guests from UNFPA and Sisters In Islam.
