Violence against Women[edit]

Adding to my above recommendation to expand on the health section, this page does not include the focused efforts of MINSA to respond to the health of women, children, and those with infectious diseases in particular. Furthermore, it fails to discuss the issue of gender inequalities and the rampant domestic violence that causes harm to the health of family members - both parents and children.

Suggest changing Post-War section[edit]

Despite growing fears of autocracy and the increasing governmental powers of Ortega's wife Rosario Murillo (m.1979)[108] as his vice president, Ortega is still popular among many Nicaraguans. This is largely due to the fact that under his presidency, gang violence has diminished, poverty levels have fallen, and Nicaraguan economic growth has surpassed other Latin American countries.[109]

I would suggest changing this in light of the recent events in Nicaragua. Riot police, traffic police, regular police, plainclothes shock troops have been filmed murdering peacefully assembling Nicaraguan citizens. Over 100 students were arrested and there are still several unaccounted for. Several media outlets have been blocked and during the chaos police have been filmed looting. The FSLN party has lost any shred of legitimacy it may have retained. A massive march of an estimated 100,000 to 300,000 people was held on Monday April 23rd in which the population displayed its opposition to the regime's barbarity.
