                World Population Day 2014

 

As part of its awareness and advocacy efforts on population issues, Jansankhya Shtirata Kosh (JSK) organised a series of advocacy events on the occasion of World Population Day, July 11, 2014.
The events were organised to create requisite awareness about the issues of population and to rededicate the nation towards the population stabilisation.
These included two key events: a Walkathon towards Population Stabilization and “National Workshop for Involving Adolescents and Youths for Population Stabilization” organised by JSK in collaboration with Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW).
For the necessary build up, a half page english and hindi advertisement was published on 10th of July, for inviting the people to be part of Walk on Population Stabilisation on July 11th, 2014 from India gate to Vijay Chowk.


1. Walkathon towards Population Stabilization

As part of observation of World Population Day, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in association with Jansankhya Sthirta Kosh (JSK) organised a “Walkathon towards Population Stabilization” Delhi today. The Walkathon was organized from India Gate to Vijay Chowk and began at 7.30 am. It was flagged off by Dr Harsh Vardhan, Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare and Ms.Shabana Azmi Renowed Actress in the presence of enthusiastic adolescents, youths, senior officers of the Government of India, members of civil societies, representatives of development partners, and several other dignitaries. Over 2500 students from various schools and colleges of Delhi participated in the Walkathon to endorse their support for the cause of population stabilisation. The Walkathon was an effort to build momentum and raise awareness around issues like empowering adolescent and youth especially focussing on girls, low female literacy, early age at marriage, early child bearing, prevent substance abuse and lead a healthy Life style, among a host of other challenges to be dealt with to address the issue of population stabilisation. Students carrying placards with slogans supporting the cause of population stabilisation joined in to advocate for the cause.
Addressing the flag off ceremony, Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare said that the walkathon has been organized to underscore the importance of population development at sustainable levels for overall socio-economic growth. He emphasized that the walkathon was to create awareness and persuade people to limit family size, for the betterment of the health of the mother, the child and the whole family.
As per 2011 census, India’s population has risen to 1.21 billion. The decadal growth rate during 2001--2011 was 17.64 per cent in comparison to 21.15 per cent in 1991--2001. The 2001-2011 period is the first decade with exception of 1911-1921 which has added lesser population compared to the previous decade. But states like UP, Bihar, MP, Rajasthan, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh witnessed high growth of population and are still to reach the TFR of 2.1. There is a rising aspiration amongst the New Generation to see India amongst the developed nations and we are making efforts to help them realize their dreams. Dr Harsh Vardhan further said that for a holistic health outcome numbers are significant and need to be under control so that the ever depleting resources could equitably be distributed. Population stabilisation cannot be the agenda of the government only. It is the responsibility of all sections of the society. He therefore urge all countrymen to make this a mass movement and achieve the goal of population stabilisation.
