Resumen

ESPANA-PAREDES, Alejandra Pamela; PAREDES-GUERRERO, Leticia Janet  y  QUINTAL-LOPEZ, Rocío Ivonne. Adolescent Pregnancy in Quintana Roo: Debates and Research Contributions for Public Policies on Prevention and Care. LiminaR [online]. 2019, vol.17, n.1, pp.187-202. ISSN 2007-8900.  http://dx.doi.org/10.29043/liminar.v17i1.654.

The objective of this article is to contrast how the state and public policies understand adolescent pregnancy when compared to views held by adolescents and their families in vulnerable conditions. The article is based on fieldwork with pregnant women aged 12 to 19 from three municipalities in the state of Quintana Roo. Adolescent pregnancy has great risks to the health of mothers and newborns, as well as social and psychological impacts. Thus, in order to reduce pregnancy within this group, public policies should be prepared in a way that responds to adolescents’ immediate socio-economic context and gender status.

Palabras llave : youth; pregnancy; gender condition; public health; public policies.
