World Population Day is marked annually on 11 July across the globe to spread awareness about the consequences of increasing population among general people. The day highlights the urgency of controlling overpopulation and is also marked to make people aware of the reproductive health needs and susceptibilities of women.
World Population Day first came into existence in 1987 when the global population reached 5 billion. The United Nations celebrated the day on 11 July after getting influenced by the celebration of ‘Five Billion Day’. Since then, this particular day is significant as it asks people to find the necessary solution to the current scenario of the growing population.
Every year, the United Nations celebrates the day on a particular theme. As the count has already touched the 8-billion mark, this year, the theme for World Population Day suggests – “A world of 8 billion: Towards a resilient future for all – Harnessing opportunities and ensuring rights and choices for all.” As this situation is indeed a threat to our mother nature and humanity as well, we need to take a step ahead together to control it and make the world a better place to live.
