Profile Information

Personal Bio
Passionate about social justice, empowerment of women and building economic independence of people of black African descent, I am solutions-oriented and believe in learning from mistakes.

July 11 is commemorated as World Population Day.  See excerpts of the UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem below 

Family planning is a human right
11 July 2018
"Fifty years ago, the world declared that “parents have a basic human right to determine freely and responsibly the number and the spacing of their children,” at the United Nations International Conference on Human Rights in Tehran, on 13 May 1968."
World Population Day, which seeks to focus attention on the urgency and importance of population issues, was established by the then-Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme in 1989, an outgrowth of the interest generated by the Day of Five Billion, which was observed on 11 July 1987. By resolution 45/216 of December 1990, the United Nations General Assembly decided to continue World Population Day to enhance awareness of population issues, including their relations to the environment and development. The Day was first marked on 11 July 1990 in more than 90 countries. 
"Family planning is ... central to women’s empowerment, reducing poverty and achieving sustainable development. ... On this World Population Day, UNFPA calls on governments to fulfill their commitments to ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health care and reproductive rights, including family planning services and information, as agreed at the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development and in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Investments in family planning today are investments in the health and well-being of millions of women for generations to come."
