From the Paper:

"Adolescent pregnancy remains a major public concern because of its impact on maternal-child health. Fertility in young girls is the subject of special attention, as the issue of pregnancy increases significantly the medical, psychological, and social risks of both mother and child (Swanson and Nies, 1998). As a result, Team D has identified inadequate prenatal care and the consequences of unprotected sex as two important healthcare needs of pregnant adolescents."
