There is an increased prevalence of adolescent girl marriages (in the age group of 14-18), especially in rural areas. These girls are usually not emotionally mature enough to handle marriage and pregnancies, and they are not physically developed to bear children. Therefore, these girls have high-risk pregnancies without proper pre and postnatal care. In addition, many girls are highly anaemic and malnourished, leading to high blood pressure or the development of other complications during pregnancy. As a consequence, this group faces increased infant and maternal mortality rates as well as a higher risk of underdeveloped or handicapped infants. Almost half of all children between 0 and 5 years in India are malnourished and anaemic.
