Family planning is a key factor in preventing unintended pregnancy, including adolescent pregnancy. By preventing unintended pregnancy, family planning also reduces the incidence of abortion, as well as improving birth outcomes. Reproductive Health Services reduce both the incidence and impact of sexually transmitted disease infection through screening and treatment.
