Economics is just the tip of “the inequality iceberg.”
That’s one of the conclusions being stressed by Richard Kollodge, Senior Editorial Adviser at the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), following the release of the agency’s 2017 report on the state of the world’s population.
Mr Kollodge told UN News that the report details the link between economic inequality and reproductive health.
High rates of unplanned pregnancy can affect the economic stability of entire communities, he said.
Mr Kollodge spoke to Natalie Hutchison.
