Teenage Pregnancy and Attitude on Sexuality in Thailand

  • Published on: 12/07/2016
  • Teenage pregnancy in Thailand is a major challenge to more than 100,000 girls each year. The unintended pregnancy impedes the potentials many young girls tend to reach in their life. In addition to that, they have to face social stigma and bias attitudes on sexuality in Thailand. This reflects gender inequality in the society. Watch more in the video which is jontly produced by Thai Rath TV and UNFPA Thailand.
     
    UNFPA sees this challenge and has worked closely with the Government and advocated for the enactment of the Act for Prevention and Solution of the Adolescent Pregnancy Problem, B.E. 2559 (2016) which looks to reduce stigma on teen mothers.
