Klang hospital recording at least one teen birth every day

Reported by The Star today. If you extrapolate this statistic, you could imagine the size of this social problem in Malaysia. What about the undocumented ones?
“We thought such numbers of teen pregnancies were only in Klang, but I am also hearing of similar scenarios in the other six specialist hospitals in Selangor,”

So, what's the solution? But before we come out with a solution, its important to diagnose and analyze the probable causes.
"Salina said she and the boy had planned to go to a fast-food restaurant but ended up in the jungle “to try out sex”. “I never knew that one could get pregnant on her first time, but I was wrong. Now, I am expecting a baby,” she said yesterday..."
"Another teenager said she got pregnant “accidentally” after watching a pornographic video with a classmate. “We ended up copying the act,” she said."

One probable cause is ignorance or lack of knowledge of the 'act' and it's consequences. While curiosity and desire were the driving forces, the 'lack of knowledge' is probably the missing control element. The recommended strategy here is 'education'.
“There is an urgent need to educate children on their right to say no' to requests for sex, to respect their bodies and the importance of abstinence and the consequences of having unprotected sex and sex at an early age,”

First, let's review your knowledge of human reproduction. Remember that sperms are very resilient organisms. They are designed to go from point A (the male) to point B (the female). Sperm have a mind of their own, and all they want to do is reach the female's egg. They do this by any means necessary. They can even survive in the womb for a number of days.
