Benetton Backs UN Population Fund With Global Family Planning Campaign

Estimates indicate that 83 million people are added to the world's population per year - which means global population would reach nearly 10 billion by 2050. The event was established by the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme in 1989.

It was first marked on 11 July 1990 in more than 90 countries. World Population Day is the best day to know the tactics to have a smooth and flawless conversation with your teenage children's and family members. Since then, a number of a number of UNFPA country offices and other organisations and institutions commemorate World Population Day, in partnership with governments and civil society.

India has many policies to control birth rate while China chose to do with controversial "One Child policy" like a couple should have only one child. Not only China, but the United States is also lagging behind in controlling birth rate in the country.

United Colors of Benetton and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) are launching a global campaign to protect against unintended pregnancies, called Power Her Choices, emphasizing women's rights to decide freely whether and when to have children. And in the world, there are around 225 million women who don't use safe planning methods.

For example, a May 2017 Human Rights Watch report, "No Control, No Choice: Lack of Access to Reproductive Healthcare in Sudan's Rebel-Held Southern Kordofan", documents how women and girls can not get contraception and have little access to health care if they face complications during pregnancy and childbirth.

Support partners affected by the policy, including by ensuring they understand what is permitted or not as there is general confusion and lack of clarity that could undermine health programs and advocacy. It is also central to Women's empowerment and gender equality, and it is a key factor in decreasing poverty growth.

The Family Planning Summit on July 11 provides an opportunity for Germany to assert its leadership on women's sexual and reproductive health and help meet the FP2020 goal of providing 120 million women with family planning.
