PDF File Size: 1.82 MB | Download   
Globally, more than 14 million girls marry each year as children (under the age of 18 years), and many of these under the age of 15. Over 700 million women alive today were married as children. Almost half of these live in South Asia. Overall 46% of women aged 20-24 in South Asia were married before the age of 18, and 130 million girls are likely to marry as children between 2010 and 2030.


Child marriage often brings social isolation, adolescent pregnancy and cessation of education, thereby limiting future opportunities. Three countries in South Asia have a prevalence of child marriage (as percent of women currently aged 20-24 who were married by age 18 at over 40%-Bangladesh (52%), India (47%) and Nepal (41%)—with some other countries, such as Afghanistan, having more than one in three women married by the age of 18.India, due to its high population, has higher numbers of child brides than most countries globally combined.
