Overview of Māori teen pregnancy

Overview of Māori teen pregnancy (pdf)
01 Dec 2011

This review is a part of a broader research project being undertaken by the Families Commission in relation to teenage pregnancy and ‘repeat’ teenage pregnancy. The project seeks to answer a number of key questions that have been shaped by the Minister of Social Development in response to what is considered an issue of increasing Teen pregnancies in Aotearoa.

This literature review provides an overview of views related to Māori teen pregnancy. A search on Māori views related to the topic has highlighted that there is a dearth of literature in the area that is grounded within Māori views or approaches and as such a wider search has been undertaken in regards to literature or research that relate to the broader topic of teen pregnancy and Māori.
