Zambia Family Planning for Adolescents Video

This video describes the adolescent wellness aspects of the Breakthrough ACTION Zambia campaign called “Life is Precious, Take Care of It”.

The video explains the high rate of unintended pregnancy among Zambian adolescents, and asks what can be done to stop this trend.

Solutions include:

  • Encourage them to wait until they are older to have children
  • Give young people access to contraceptives
  • Practice abstinence
  • Use a condom every time they have sex, even when using other contraceptives
