Pregnant teenagers from the poor population of Valledupar have many difficulties to attend health promotion and prevention programs, to maternal controls in the care centers, they do not receive food supplements, the medicines are not of good quality and in some cases are not provided. they are not trained in warning signs during pregnancy and in family planning methods and do not have access to them, for this reason they are the high rates of teen pregnancy and infant maternal mortality
Carry out health brigades with specialized medical consultations, laboratory tests, ultrasound, provide them with the medicines and nutritional supplements they need, train them in the recognition of warning signs to avoid complications in childbirth and in different methods of family planning avoiding future pregnancies, provide psychological help so they can overcome the factors that influenced their sexual relationships at an early age and follow up on the care routes.
Reduce the high rates of pregnancies, maternal mortality and in newborns by 50% in 5 years, since currently in Valledupar maternal mortality represents 73.65% of the deaths considered preventable and 25% of these deaths are in minors of 18 years. The infant mortality rate due to malnutrition is 0.91% and 1.9% for low birth weight per 100 thousand live births. In recent years there have been high mortality figures before and after birth, the long-term effect of the project is to reduce them.
