Gender Inequality

The hidden face of conflict – maternal mortality

Displaced Sudanese women walk past an armoured personnel carrier (APC) of United Nations-African Union Mission in Nyala, southern Darfur March 17,2009. Law and order have collapsed in Darfur where international experts say at least 200,000 people have been killed, while Khartoum says 10,000 have died. The undermanned peacekeeping force has found itself caught in the middle of an increasingly chaotic conflict involving bandits, rival tribes, government militias and rebels.
