One out of five girls aged between 15-24 years among the youths in Nairobi is pregnant.

This is according to Mama Ye Evidence for Action an organization doing maternal  health in Nairobi .

The organization’s  coordinator George Ogola  says the trend  is being caused by improper channels and lack of sensitization of teenagers on family planning and general maternal health.

He has also asked  Nairobi county government  to  ensure KEMSA avails  required drugs for family planning purposes.

Meanwhile the National Council for Population and development ,maintains that the council will ensure safety  for  those using  contraceptives.

Director Samuel Tanui says the council is working closely  with KEBS to ensure what is consumed is correct and do not have adverse side effects.
