Mrs Aryee expressed satisfaction with the high coverage in family planning acceptance in the district, but regretted about the rise in teenage pregnancy in the district.

Mr Martin Obeng, the Sunyani West District Chief Executive said alcoholism, drug abuse and its peddling among the youth in the area remained a huge challenge that required concerted efforts to control.
