Child marriage around the world - new data & country profiles

Child marriage is a violation of human rights that impacts girls into adulthood and extends to the next generation. Despite efforts to eliminate this harmful practice, it remains remarkably widespread.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, UNICEF is releasing statistical country profiles that allow a closer look at the practice of child marriage around the world. These profiles highlight levels and trends and offer insights into the characteristics of early unions and the lives of child brides.
