World Population Day

Statement by Dr. Natalia Kanem, UNFPA Executive Director, on World Population Day

Déclarations et déclaration

Focusing only on population numbers and growth rates often leads to coercive and counterproductive measures and the erosion of human rights, for example, to women being pressured to have children or prevented from doing so. It can deepen already acute inequalities, such as through policies shutting down reproductive health care or denying adequate pensions for the elderly, further marginalizing the most disenfranchised.

This year’s World Health Day spotlights the climate crisis as the biggest threat to human life and health. Up to 3.6 billion people, nearly half of humanity, are reported to live in climate change hotspots. Many struggle to find sufficient food, water and income, with the most acute risks among those already vulnerable due to poverty or discrimination based on gender, race, age, disability or other factors.

SEEING THE UNSEEN. The case for action in the neglected crisis of unintended pregnancy.

SEEING THE UNSEEN

Rapport sur l'état de la population mondiale

This year's report, "Understanding the Unseen: Taking Action to End the Neglected Problem of Unintended Pregnancy," highlights the urgent need to take action to prevent unintended pregnancies. Indeed, worldwide, it is estimated that half of all pregnancies, or 121 million, are not the result of a deliberate choice. 60% of these unwanted pregnancies end in abortion, of which approximately 45% occur in unsuitable conditions, increasing the risk of maternal death. It is estimated that 5-13% of maternal deaths occur as a result of abortion; this has a major impact on the ability of countries to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

While the issue of unintended pregnancy is recognized as a global problem, it remains more pronounced in developing countries where women's and girls' sexual and reproductive health rights are often violated. Thus, through this 2022 edition of the State of World Population, UNFPA highlights the need to uphold the universal right of couples to have the number of children they want. The report also presents solutions that are already within reach, while emphasizing the need for a holistic and integrated approach to the issue. A real and sustainable process depends largely on the elimination of gender inequalities and all forms of discrimination against women, as well as the transformation of the social and economic structures that sustain them.

Déclarations et déclaration

Women and girls pay a heavy price during conflicts and emergencies.

More than 1.7 million people, mostly women and children, have now fled from their homes in Ukraine to neighbouring countries. For them, displacement will bring increased vulnerability to violence, sexual abuse and exploitation. Moreover, many of these women are pregnant and may need medical care or help with complicated pregnancies. A lack of access to healthcare in these situations puts their lives at risk.

Déclarations et déclaration

Pandemics thrive on the fault lines of inequalities. Ending inequality must therefore be a keystone of our public health response to ending AIDS and COVID-19 and averting future pandemics. HIV prevention initiatives must encompass ending gender-based violence, balancing unequal power dynamics and countering harmful gender norms.
