July 11 - World Population Day

The World Population Day was announced by a decision of the UN, on the occasion of the birth of the five billionth resident on the planet on July 11, 1987, and has been officially celebrated since 1989.

The goal is to focus public attention on issues related to the population, poverty, birth rate, family planning and human rights.

Every year the World Population Day is under a different moto. This year there is a call on leaders, politicians, organizations and institutions to support efforts to make reproductive health and gender equality a reality for all.
