A new national advocacy strategy on population calls for smaller families to address the population growth that is running out of hand if Uganda is to attain economic development.

The report notes that 78% of Uganda’s population is aged 30 years and below, majority of which are unemployed, hence posing a danger of civil disobedience and political instability.

“Uganda needs to urgently accelerate the shift from high to low fertility and mortality rates which will enable it to reap a demographic dividend. At the same time, the country needs to accelerate efforts to improve the quality of its population,” the new national advocacy strategy by the Population Secretariat says.
