unstar this property answer text <p>Period poverty is a serious issue in Zimbabwe. For example, recent reports show that some 62% of girls are missing school every month and 5% drop out completely due to menstruation. The Government of Zimbabwe has sought to address this through suspending import duty and value added tax on sanitaryware. Through our programmes in Zimbabwe we are currently supporting over 12,000 girls to stay in secondary school by providing a package of essential items including sanitaryware. In addition, the recently launched United Nations humanitarian flash appeal highlights procurement of sanitaryware as a priority action for specific groups.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We view EU restrictive measures as one of the tools to promote peace, democracy and the respect for the rule of law, human rights and international law. They are a tool used in conjunction with other methods, including political dialogue, as part of an integrated policy approach. They are targeted on specific individual and Zimbabwe Defence Industries and do no damage to the wider economy or the people of Zimbabwe.</p><p>The UK and our EU partners continue to assess the appropriateness of sanctions in light of recent developments. The crackdown on demonstrations in January 2019, as well as the disproportionate use of force by the authorities, called into question the Zimbabwean Government's commitment to uphold human rights and the rule of law. New listings can be swiftly adopted if required.</p> more like this
