Happy 50th birthday, Zambia!

The southern African nation of Zambia gained independence from Britain on October 24, 1964. Half a century later, it’s one of the most politically stable countries in the region. But as Zambia celebrates its 50th birthday, some Zambians are turning their attention to fixing the problems of the future.

Safer abortions in Zambia

In the African nation of Zambia, abortion is legal, but few medical clinics offer the procedure and women therefore try it themselves. A hospital in Zambia's capital, Lusaka, aims to save women's lives by making abortion safer and more widely available.
