|Samenvatting||According to the Guttmacher Institute/IPPF in Facts on the Sexual and|
Reproductive Health of Adolescent Women in the Developing World,
some 67 per cent of married adolescent women in sub-Saharan Africa,
aged 12 to 19 years, who want to avoid pregnancy are not using any
method of birth control. About 12 per cent are using traditional family planning methods including breast feeding, the rhythm (calendar) method, among others. They further state that 42 per cent of unmarried, sexually active women do not use any family planning method. Mobile phone technology can help overcome this issue.
