Ending Child Marriage

A new Time magazine article on the US–Africa Leaders Summit highlights the human rights violation that is child marriage, as well as solutions and players working to stop it, including the Population Council.

The Council’s Berhane Hewan project, which significantly reduced child marriage and increased schooling among enrolled girls aged 10–14, was discussed at a Summit side event on ending child marriage hosted by the International Center for Research on Women along with Human Rights Watch and the International Women's Health Coalition.
