The Philippines has the fastest-growing HIV rate in the Asia-Pacific region; and teen pregnancies have soared by 65 percent since 2000. Now, a government restraining order is restricting access to birth control, as teenage girls increasingly turn to relationships with older men for financial security.
Join us for a Facebook Live conversation about teen pregnancy in the Philippines, moderated by Women & Girls reporter Ana P. Santos. She will be joined by Dr. Emma Llanto of UP-PGH and the Society of Adolescent Medicine in the Philippines, Marla Darwin, co-founder of the feminist collective Grrrl Gang Manila, and Hope Basiao-Abella, Adolescent Reproductive Health Project Coordinator at Likhaan Center for Women's Health.
