Adolescent Pregnancy

Teenage pregnancy has steadily increased in Thailand over the past fifteen years. In 2002, 32 out of every one thousand girls under 19 had been pregnant at least once; in 2014 this number had increased to 53 out of every one thousand girls. Thailand has enacted the Act to Prevent and to Solve Adolescent Pregnancy in 2016 as a new legal framework to better coordinate national efforts in providing rights to sexual and reproductive health to all young people in Thailand.
