Zayed: To face overpopulation, we target high birth zones with raising awareness

Minister of Health Hala Zayed said on Sunday 27/1/2019 that an initiative for birth control would be launched to raise awareness about the issue of overpopulation.

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi is paying special attention to the overpopulation issue, Zayed said at a press conference following a meeting of the National Population Council, which grouped representatives of 13 ministries, and other bodies and people interested in the issue.

The initiative is targeting villages with high birth rates and is expected to concentrate on raising awareness among villagers on the importance of having only two children.
