World Population Day 2021

World Population Day 2021 Celebrations

Uganda has been commemorating World Population Day since 1989 and has been using this occasion to raise critical awareness, mobilize commitment and support among the country’s leadership in government, civil society, professionals, the private sector, donor community, the media and the public, about the country’s population issues that need their attention.

National activities for observing World Population Day have been hosted by various districts since 1994 giving such districts a chance to raise the profile of their population concerns onto the public and policy agenda.

This year’s World Population Day is the twenty-seventh to be observed and will be hosted by Ntoroko district on July 11,2021 under the theme COVID-19 and Beyond: A Spotlight on Uganda’s Adolescent Reproductive Health.
