Zimbabwe women's health

A horrific article on This Is Zimbabwe about women's health under the deteriorating conditions in the country:
This isn’t simply a story about shortages of yet another type of product. Shortages of sanitary ware go to the heart of women’s rights: it’s an issue which raises questions of whether a woman is forced to stay away from work or school; whether she is putting her health at risk by picking up infections or, if she is HIV positive, whether those infections will literally shorten her life span.
Please support this campaign in any way you can. The average life expectancy for women in Zim is 34 years and is being cut down fast by worsening conditions.
