The Ministry of Health of Belize is offering a warm invitation to the Belizean public to join the observance of the World Population Day 2012 celebrated under the theme "Universal Access to Sexual and Reproductive health Services" on Wednesday July 11, 2012.
Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, UNFPA Executive Director and the Hon Pablo Marin, Minister of Health would like to remind us that giving birth is typically the most joyful moment in a woman’s life. Yet, this very process takes the life of so many women worldwide and that working for the survival and the well-being of women and girls are a human right imperative; and in order to take advantage of women’s full potential in the development of their nations, they must be able to plan their lives and families.
