THE heads of the Cakaudrove and Macuata provinces have been advised to report cases of teenage prgenancies to the police.
Even though the two provincial offices have not received any case so far this year, provincial officials believe the problem persists.
Roko tui Cakaudrove Ro Aca Mataitini said such cases were rife in the province last year where seven primary school students aged between 11 and 14 years were reported pregnant.
"We haven't received any case so far this year but we know there are victims out there who need our help," Ro Aca said.
"At the moment, we are just increasing our awareness programs, advising mothers to play their role and teenage girls to look after themselves well."
Ro Aca said it was everyone's responsibility to report cases of teenage pregnancy in a bid to control the social ill.
"We sent young mothers to Suva last year where they have been cared for and looked after well," he said.
Roko tui Macuata Sitiveni Lalibuli said the issue should be a subject of discussion in homes.
"Parents also play an active role in disciplining their children because their teachings will shape their future," Mr Lalibuli said.
"Teenage pregnancy should be talked about at home and mothers should constantly remind their children about the consequences they will encounter when they become single mothers."
