Abstract

In this statement current research data will be reviewed and relevant information will be provided so that pediatricians and others responsible for the health care of adolescents can appreciate the implications and consequences of adolescent sexual activity and early childbearing. Adolescent sexual intercourse and subsequent pregnancy are pressing contemporary concerns. Society can resolve these issues only through open discussion, adequate training of health care personnel, a more effective delivery and funding of health care and health education, and, finally, continued research.
