Child marriage is a social problem that is prevalent in all regions of the country and primarily affects girls. Gender inequality is embedded in traditions and values, rises with poverty and lack of education, and results in child marriage for girls.

This is one of 14 country overviews produced by UNFPA EECARO about child marriage in the region, including country-specific national and legal context, responses, data, and recommendations for the future.
