In today’s world, gaps in wealth have grown shockingly wide. Billions of people linger at the bottom, denied their human rights and prospects for a better life. At the top, resources and privileges accrue at explosive rates, pushing the world ever further from the vision of equality embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
 
This year's State of World Population Report Worlds Apart delves into the effect these inequalities have on women and girls' reproductive health.

Zimbabwe has appealed for assistance after declaring floods a national disaster. Almost 250 people have been killed and about 2,000 people have been left homeless, with around 900 people displaced to a camp in Tsholostho in Matabeleland North. Much of the heavy rains received over the past month can be attributed to Tropical Cyclone DINEO, which crossed southern and western Zimbabwe as a powerful storm system in mid-February. Special Cabinet Committee has raised $14.5 million of the $100 million required to repair extensive infrastructure damage, including to roads, bridges, schools and clinics. Assessments are ongoing as humanitarian partners consider redirecting the current drought response as well as mobilizing additional
resources. Multi-sectoral life-saving response activities are ongoing in the worst affected districts. Rains are expected to continue until April.
