ITS EDUCATION ASIA ARTICLE


World Population Day 11 July


UNFPA – the United Nations Population Fund – is high-lighting in 2021 how covid has impacted on reproductive health and how this is yet another example of how population policies often clash with the rights of women to make their own reproductive choices.

It also exposed and exacerbated gender-based inequities: gender-based violence increased under lockdown, as did the risk of child marriage and female genital mutilation as programmes to abolish the harmful practices were disrupted. Significant numbers of women left the labour force – their often low-paying jobs were eliminated or caregiving responsibilities for children learning remotely or for homebound older people increased – destabilizing their finances, not just for now but in the long run.

Anyone with an interest in SDGs 3, 5 & 10 will have interest here in particular.
