Check pop­u­la­tion growth

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - MARIUM GHOUS

In next few years, Pak­istan would likely be the 5th most pop­u­lated country of the world. The rea­son be­hind this rapid in­crease in pop­u­la­tion is lake of at­ten­tion on women’s health. Ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey, the pop­u­la­tion of Pak­istan con­tin­ues to grow and due to the grow­ing num­ber of preg­nan­cies, both women and chil­dren will suf­fer from more health prob­lems.

The un­em­ploy­ment in youth, early mar­riages, low gap be­tween the kids, poor in­come growth, avoid­ance of birth con­trol method are some of the main rea­sons be­hind the over pop­u­la­tion of Pak­istan. Country like China has set a pol­icy to reg­u­late the num­ber of chil­dren. Pak­istan gov­ern­ment should take ac­tion against the grow­ing pop­u­la­tion of the country by spread­ing aware­ness and ed­u­ca­tion about the pop­u­la­tion and en­act­ing birth con­trol mea­sures. Fam­ily plan­ning must be taken to avoid such prob­lems. — Via email
