Pregnancy in Haiti

You give me more food and I will produce more babies

It has been reported that a food distribution program in the town of Savanette is suspected to be the principal reason for an increase in pregnancy among girls and women in the area.

A USAID-funded World Vision food assistance program that started in 2008 until September 2013 in several communities around the town of Savanette has been distributing food to pregnant women and mothers of children from six to 23 months old.

According to some, many people were getting pregnant every year in order to get free food

You can't get into the program unless you are pregnant, said one recipient

Another person mentioned that young girls as early as 12 are getting pregnant Savanette to take advantage of the program
