This brochure showcases the 2017 results of the UNFPA-UNICEF Global Programme to End Child Marriage. It also explains the five proven strategies used by the Global Programme to empower girls, mobilize communities and strengthen policies to end child marriage.

In 2017, over one million girls and four million community members in Africa, the Middle East and South Asia were reached with information, skills and services related to ending child marriage. Nine of the 12 countries have developed national strategies to end child marriage, five of which are costed – including three newly costed in 2017 (Ghana, Nepal and Zambia).
