Minister of Local Development Mahmoud Shaarawy has called for increasing the awareness of citizens towards productive health and birth control.
In a statement on Tuesday, the minister said unnecessary population increase wastes the fruits of development and efforts exerted by the state to improve the lives of citizens, pointing out that citizens do not feel the fruits of development because of the population increase. He said his ministry is keen to implement the 2030 population and development strategy which has been drawn up by government and non-government agencies to solve the overpopulation problem and achieve development.
Minister Shaarawy pointed out that workshops had been organized in many governorates, including Upper Egyptian ones, as part of efforts to overcome overpopulation problems.MENA
