Zambia is a landlocked country situated on a high plateau in south-central Africa, known for its wildlife parks and for the iconic Victoria Falls. Zambia has managed to avoid the war and upheaval that has marked much of Africa’s post-colonial history, earning itself a reputation for political stability and relative transparency.
Despite its relative political stability, Zambia ranks among the countries with highest level of inequality globally. As of 2015, 58% of Zambians earned less than $1.90 per day and three quarters of the poor lived in rural areas. The death rate due to HIV/AIDS is also one of the highest in the world.
