    CONTEXT AND SITUATION IN MOZAMBIQUE

    According to data from the  United Nations Mozambique (2019), the country  is one of the 10 poorest and with the worst living conditions on the planet, due to the war-time lasting more than twenty years, natural disasters, illnesses, high population growth, low agricultural productivity and an unequal wealth distribution. Its birth rate has been one of the highest in the world with an average of more than 5 children per mother (greater in rural areas) for more than three decades. The high sustained level of fertility reflects the inequality of gender, the low use of contraceptives, early marriages and maternity, and the lack of education, especially among women.
