Focus on ending child marriage must not stop

The issue of child marriage encompasses various social and economic barriers that still exist in Bangladesh, where the rate of child marriage is one of the highest in the world. It is closely linked with drop-out rates in schools, premature childbirth and mortality, less mobility of girls, less access to income-generating activities, lack of social visibility, and eventually the harmful effects it has not only on the psychosocial aspects of child marriage survivors, but also on the larger economy.
