The Osun State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Rafiu Isamotu has revealed that pregnancy among many sexually active teenage girls is on the increase due to lack of selfcare and poor parenting.

Dr. Isamotu made this known Thursday in Osogbo while delivering an address at a seminar organised by the Federal Ministry of Health, Public Health Department.

He noted that many sexually active young girls got pregnant prematurely with a high tendency to procure illegal abortions which may result in mortality.

The commissioner said, “others who eventually deliver these babies lack the psychological and material requirements for raising a child. These situation thereby result in poorly raised children who end up becoming a menace to the society.”

In his contribution, the Director of Reproductive Health, Federal Ministry of Health, Dr. Kayode Afolabi, who was represented by Remi Bajomo, Deputy Director of Reproductive Health, explained that selfcare delivery was a new innovation to enable women attend to their health by themselves, without requiring the services of any health care provider.

Dr. Afolabi had stressed that states and local governments had enormous responsibilities of ensuring that the message on the national guidelines on selfcare was taken to the rural areas where it was much needed because of the high percentage of people with limited literacy who reside in them.

Remarking, Dr. Adewale Adefalu, Country Coordinator, John Show Incorporated, stated that one of the selfcare products which is delivered through syringes could be administered individually.

He explained that it provided women of reproductive age with three additional months of contraceptive coverage, adding that the barriers associated with facility-based care such as cost, access and stigma were removed from the process.
