Growing Population A Matter of Great Concern: Azad

“More South-South cooperation and mutual understanding would help to redefine strategies in terms of introduction of newer contraceptives, technical protocols and also replicate the successful schemes in the area of population stabilisation”. The Union Health and Family Welfare Minister and Chairman, Partners in Population Development (PPD), Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad was today addressing a gathering at Nairobi, Kenya on the occasion of Re-Launch of Family Planning Campaign of Government of Kenya during the ongoing three day meeting of the Executive Committee of PPD. Minister of State for Planning, National Development and Vision 2030, Government of Kenya, Mr Wycliffe Ambetsa Oparanya; Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, Prof. Dr. A F M Ruhal Haque; Vice Minister, National Population and Family Planning Commission, Government of the People’s Republic of China, Ms. Cui Li; Secretary, Health & Family Welfare, Government of India and senior officials of Government of Kenya and the twenty four other partner countries of PPD were present on the occasion.

Shri Azad said “Kenya and India can engage with each other and work together – We will be glad to share our policy initiatives, schemes, products and expertise”. In efforts toward population stabilization, it is clear that each country can learn from experiences of other countries as to how best to address the complicated issues which involve health, education, socio-economic development and individual choices. Sharing of views on common platforms like these help us to learn and gain from each other’s experience, Shri Azad noted.
