From , 3:04 pm on 27 June 2018

The UN agency dealing with reproductive health and rights says midwives and nurses can play a big role in reducing violence against women.

The UN Population Fund is stepping up its work in the Pacific to combat stubbornly high rates of teenage pregnancy and deaths among women during pregnancy and childbirth.

The director for the agency in the Asia-Pacific, Bjorn b-yawn Andersson, told Sally Round it's also scaling up efforts to address gender-based violence.
