Panama City

In 2015, the Voces Vitales Foundation opened the doors of Las Claras Center in Panama City, in the community of Felipillo. Our 360 Degrees Model was adapted to the local context to address the problem of teenage pregnancy in the country.

  • 20% of the population lives below the poverty line.
  • 1 of every 5 live births is to an adolescent.
  • Every 43 minutes, a teenager becomes pregnant. A significant percentage of those cases correspond to sexual abuse, early or forced illegal unions, or ignorance.
  • Teenage pregnancies represent 36% of pregnancies nationwide.
  • 75% of pregnant teenagers drop out of school.
  • 1 in 5 woman has experienced violence.
