Equality, Health and Rights: Towards the Zambia We Want for Women and Girls

UNFPA Zambia, in collaboration the Ministry of National Development Planning, launched the 2020 State of World Population Report under the theme "Against my will: defying the practices that harm women and girls and undermine equality"; as well as the 2020 World Population Day under the theme "Putting the Breaks on COVID-19: How to Safeguard the Health and Rights of Women and Girls Now”. The dual launch made the case that investing in women and girls can yield significant socio-economic dividends, including contributing to the achievement of Zambia’s Vision 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals aimed at improving health and well-being for all by 2030.
