MBtv: Indonesia child marriages on the rise

Indonesia, which has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world according to UNICEF, last year raised the legal age for wedlock in a bid to tackle the problem. Despite the reform, many are still being forced into marriage by desperate families in poverty. Indonesia’s family planning agency has warned the nation, already home to 270 million people, could see a huge baby boom early next year due to school closures and dwindling access to contraception.
