Algeria celebrates the World Population Day

The Ministry of Health and UNFPA organized a joint event to celebrate WPD on 11 July at the National Institute of Public Health (INSP).  The event’s theme was ‘25 years after the ICPD: Accelerating the Promise’.  It included a discussion on the progress made in population on the national level since 1994 and on the need to accelerate the ICPD Programme of Action in order to achieve the SDGs by 2030.  The discussion was led by a panel formed of representatives of the National Population Committee, the National Economic and Social Council, and of different sectors and ministries.  Among the recommendations that came out of the day were the need for an accurate and reliable population data collection system, a monitoring/evaluation system of the national population plan, and for the empowerment and integration of women in different sectors. © UNFPA Algeria
