Children's charities will give their views on what needs to be done to reduce teenage pregnancy rates when they appear before MSPs.
Holyrood's Health Committee will hear from representatives from various organisations on Tuesday as it continues its inquiry into the issue.
Charities due to appear at the committee include Who Cares? Scotland, CHILDREN 1st, NSPCC Scotland; the Family Planning Association and Brook, among others.
The session is expected to cover the reasons why teenagers become pregnant, the action being taken to reduce teen pregnancy rates, including sex education, and the challenges faced by those working in this area.
In a written submission to the committee, Who Cares? Scotland has suggested MSPs should also hear directly from teenagers who have experienced teen pregnancy "in order to understand how current support services are provided to them, and what needs they are and are not meeting, from their perspective".
Figures published in June showed a key Scottish Government target for reducing pregnancies among under-16s was missed.
Ministers had hoped to cut the pregnancy rate in this age group to 6.8 pregnancies per 1,000 girls by 2010. But the pregnancy rate for that year was 7.1 per 1,000 - the same as it had been in 2009.
NHS Fife was shown to have the highest rate among under-16s and under-18s while NHS Ayrshire and Arran had the highest rate among the under-20s.
