Report: Countries with the Highest Teenage Pregnancy Rates, 2024

Earth in Outer Space

It’s worth noting that more than 13 million children are born to women who are under the age of 20. Around 90 percent of these births (which is approximately 12 million) occur in developing countries, with African nations having the highest number. This is a significant figure when considering the overall number of daily births. To find out which country has the highest rate of adolescent pregnancy per 1,000 teenage girls, please continue reading.

West African nation of Niger tops the list with a rate of 170 out of 1,000 teenagers. In Niger, peer pressure, inadequate parental care, a lack of sex education, low educational attainment, and poverty — which results in early marriage — are the main causes of teenage pregnancy. After Niger, Mozambique is the second-most country in the world with the highest teenage pregnancy rate, with 166 teenage pregnancies per 1,000 women between the ages of 15 and 19. Similar to Niger, the majority of girls in the nation are married before becoming 18, and half of them have children before turning 19.
