Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about world population day. World Population Day was first observed in 1989 by the UN to educate the people and tackle the problem of the expanding population.
With the tagline “Family planning is a human right”, the program responds to the law from 50 years ago that states that women and girls can decline to have multiple pregnancies that are too close together. World Population Day is an important day to raise public awareness of issues related to reproductive health.
Research indicates that 800 women pass away giving birth to a child every day, and the main goal is to raise awareness of family planning and to teach individuals how to improve their reproductive health. Additionally, concerns related to a person’s sexuality must be addressed due to the 15 million pregnancies in this age range worldwide, 4 million of which result in abortions.
World Population Day is an important event to empower both young boys and girls. It teaches people how to prevent sexually transmitted diseases or infections, ensures easy access to reproductive health care services, and mandates specific laws for protecting the rights of a girl child.
Additionally, it provides information on sexuality and postpones weddings until a person is prepared to comprehend the obligations. The main goals of World Population Day are to raise awareness of issues relating to reproduction and to empower the younger generation by educating them about sexism and other topics. Thank you.
