Romania ranks second in the top countries in the European Union with the most teenage mothers, and one in 6 teenagers who had a child before the age of 15 will have a second child before the age of 18. These are the conclusions of a UNICEF study presented earlier this year, which shows how this phenomenon has evolved in recent years and how Romania got here, although for at least 20 years a number of new institutions have been created at the level of local communities, which would they could be more directly involved in the prevention of teenage pregnancies and births.
