A child under 15 is married every seven seconds around the world. Each year, 12 million young girls marry before they turn 18. The figures released by UNICEF in 2019 shudder.

The Covid-19 accelerates forced marriages

The number of early and forced marriages has increased to the point of alerting the NGO Save the Children, which defends children's rights around the world. Last October, she revealed that nearly 500,000 more underage girls could be forcibly married in 2020.

This figure is a direct consequence of the pandemic. Poverty would push parents to make their children work to meet household expenses or to marry them so that they are no longer dependent on them.

Among the regions most affected by this phenomenon, we find South Asia, with nearly 200,000 more marriages of young girls this year. This is followed by Central and West Africa (90,000 girls concerned), Latin America and the Caribbean (73,400), East Asia and the Pacific (61,000), Europe and Central Asia (37,200) as well as the Middle East and North Africa (14,400). Since these are only cases known to the NGO, these figures represent only the "tip of the iceberg," the organization said in a statement.

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) predicts that by 2030, the health crisis will result in 13 million more cases of child, early and forced marriage.
