World Population Day
ZNFPC joins the rest of the world in celebrating World Population Day. The day is an annual event commemorated on the 11th of July to raise awareness of global population issues. The celebrations aim to increase people’s responsiveness on various socio-economic development issues such as the importance of family planning, gender equality, poverty, maternal health and human rights. Family planning empowers women and girls and helps save lives. Pregnancy should be by choice and not by chance.
The theme for this year’s celebration is, ‘Rights and choices are the answer: Whether baby boom or bust, the solution to shifting fertility rates lies in prioritizing the reproductive health and rights of all people’
