Rwanda Demographic & Health Survey (RDHS) reported that the teen pregnancy rate slightly increased from 6.1% in 2010 to 7.3% in 2015.
Gender Adolescence Global Evidence 2017 shows that Rwandan women aged 15-24 account for 47% of maternal death and 1 in 5 girls get unintended pregnant in the country. In other words 57,000 adolescent girls aged between 15 and 19 years get unplanned pregnancies which usually leads to early marriage and gender based violences. The project will firstly create a sexual and reproductive health e-learning platform which will be used by secondary school students and secondly an e-referral which will connect secondary school students with the nearest health care institutions for getting access to sexual and reproductive health services. The project aims to target the youth population and in the long term, mitigate the consequences of unintended pregnancies: early parenthood, malnutrition, school dropout, psychological disorder, poverty etc.
