Press Release
As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, the number of women unable to access family planning, facing unintended pregnancies, gender-based violence and other harmful practices could skyrocket by millions of cases in the months ahead, according to data released today by UNFPA.
In early April, Malawi recorded its first COVID-19 case and in response the government declared a national state of disaster. Yet for UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, preparations for COVID-19 started well in advance with procurement of essential health equipment.
Forty seven percent of women in Malawi are married before the age of 18, which puts Malawi on 12th in the world on early child marriages
