Author: UNFPA

While China is relaxing its one-child policy, Ethiopia, one of the most heavily populated countries in Africa, is moving in the opposite direction. Recently, Bloomberg's Carole Zimmer received a fellowship grant to visit Ethiopia, sponsored by the International Center for Journalists and the U.N Foundation. During her visit, she reported on how family planning is at the center of Ethiopia's efforts to promote economic advancement in one of the poorest nations in the world.

Listen to the report on Bloomberg Radio.
