Statement by UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem on World Population Day 11 July 2020
As Canada celebrates its national day on 1 July, young women and girls' sexual and reproductive health and rights will be advanced in South Africa through the effective implementation of the UNFPA and UNICEF joint programme, “Empowering Women and Girls to realize their Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights”, funded by the Government of Canada.
Every day, hundreds of thousands of girls around the world are harmed physically or psychologically, with the full knowledge and consent of their families, friends and communities. And without urgent action, the situation is likely to worsen.
