Title: GHANA – The Importance of Traditional Teachings and Practices for Adolescent Reproductive Health
Summary: Adolescent pregnancies within as well as outside marriage have become a major problem for the international community (UN, WHO, etc.). While research has been initiated to better understand and develop pragmatic responses to this issue, traditional practices and teachings that address adolescent reproductive health have virtually been ignored and, unfortunately, are on the decline.
Dr. Tagoe-Darko’s research seems to suggest that an understanding of traditional teachings, their unique characteristics and concepts that enable them to promote health may facilitate the development of another form of training besides classroom education. This is a crucial factor in adolescent reproductive health.
