Our world is increasingly unequal, with sharp differences in terms of wealth, power, rights and opportunities. That is the focus of this year’s UNFPA report The State of World Population 2017 – WORLDS APART: reproductive health and rights in an age of inequality. On 25 October, Nadine Krysostan from the UNFPA Brussels Office, presented the report in the Belgian parliament.
Girls are the key to success of the 2030 Development Agenda and forced marriage, child labour, female genital cutting and other practices undermine their health and rights. That is the main message of the 2016 State of the World Population of the UNFPA.
