“Failing to Plan is planning to fail”
Poster making Competition on World Population Day
(An initiative by Alexis Centre for Public Policy and International Relations)
In 1989, in its decision 89/46, the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme recommended that, in order to focus attention on the urgency and importance of population issues in the context of overall development plans and programmes and the need to find solutions for these issues, 11th July should be observed by the international community as World Population Day.
About 16 million girls under age 18 give birth each year. Another 3.2 million undergo unsafe abortions. The vast majority (90 per cent) of the pregnant adolescents in the developing world are married. But for far too many of these girls, pregnancy has little to do with informed choice. Often it is a consequence of discrimination, rights violations (including child marriage), inadequate education or sexual coercion.
We have a very exciting poster making competition in line for you. And guess what it’s about?! If you guessed World Population Day, then you’re right! Since World Population Day is around the corner, ACPPIR has taken this step to enlighten the masses and make them aware of the impairment festering in our society.
