What are the teenage pregnancy numbers for Kenya?
Three percent of girls aged 15 to 19 years were pregnant at the time of the 2014 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey. A further 15% had had a live birth, bringing the share of adolescents in this age group who had started childbearing to 18%.
In May 2019, the Ministry of Health told Africa Check that from July 2016 to June 2017, a total of 377,010 adolescents aged 10 to 19 had been pregnant. They made up close to 30% of all antenatal care clients that year.
