We are organizing a Special Issue on Teenage Reproductive Health in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Maternal mortality is still globally high and reducing it is a top priority. Teenage pregnancies have more complications and are also unwanted in many cases. This contributes to the high maternal mortality with both obstetric complications and the burden of unsafe abortion. Additionally, many teenagers live in areas with heavy pollution that affect the mother and the unborn child. Global public health is a very important issue that aims to prevent disease, prolong life, and promote physical, mental, and social well-being. Teenagers are the future and maternal death is a disaster that should be prevented. Hence, research should aim to improve teenage reproductive health and influence policy makers.
This Special Issue is open to any subject related to teenage reproductive health and its link to the environment. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
