However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage.
End to Population Growth: We are far from a world in which all births result from intended pregnancies. For various reasons they are not using contraception. If all births resulted from women actively intending to conceive, fertility would immediately fall slightly below the replacement level; world population would peak within a few decades and subsequently decline.
It is not expensive to help all women to be in fully control of the timing and frequency of their childbearing. The key obstacles are religious, cultural, and political opposition to contraception or the possibility of population decline.
More research and a public better educated about sexuality and reproduction could engender a global social movement that would make possible a world of intended pregnancies and births. We have 18 families and no one has more than three children. The health of the children and mothers has improved, and so has the spacing of babies.
Everyone understands the importance of family planning now. This holistic view has helped slow the increase in world population. The average family has declined from six children in to around three today. Education and improved health for women and access to contraception are vital.
Smaller families are healthier families and improve the prospects of each generation. Since more women have access to education and other rights, and more early-marriage traditions are being opposed.
Most countries have laws prohibiting violence against women, female genital mutilation, and other violations of human rights. The Two Parts of Sustainability Are Consumption and Population The world could possibly reduce consumption down to a very basic level, but if population keeps growing, eventually that will not be enough.
Even today many are living on a sub-sustainable level, due in part to an uneven distribution of resources, but also because, in many regions, population has outgrown essential resources for that region.
When people feel threatened by a hand-to-mouth existence, they are more likely to look towards less-than democratic ways to reduce population, especially if they have the foresight to realize that population growth is like a run-away train, very difficult to slow and stop.
However, more and more evidence is showing that the methods that work the best towards reducing population growth, are the methods established by the principles of the Cairo Conference in United Nations International Conference on Population and Development ICPD SeptemberCairo, Egyptwhich include: Empowering women and girls in the economic, political, and social arenas; b.
Removing gender disparities in education; c. Integrating family planning with related efforts to improve maternal and child health; and d. Iran has more than halved its fertility rate in a decade.
In addition, contraception helps lengthen the interval of birth spacing, improving perinatal outcomes and child survival. Greater-than-average risk to maternal, perinatal, and child survival is associated with pregnancies at very young 34 years maternal ages, at high parities, and with short interpregnancy intervals, and with pregnancies that would have ended in unsafe abortion.
It ties directly to fertility rates and thus quantify the risk of maternal death per woman. It is indicative of risk per pregnancy due to poor access to and quality of obstetric services. It also responds to fertility rates, which can affect the proportion of births to women with greater-than-average obstetric risk.
MMRatios tend to be raised at parity 1, then become lowered at paritiesthen raised again atand highest at parities greater than 6. Raised maternal mortality risks at high parities have been seen in Pakistan, Senegal, and west Africa.
It also ties directly to fertility rates and thus quantify the risk of maternal death per woman. A fall in the number of pregnancies lowers the number of maternal deaths. Another category of high-risk pregnancies are those that end in unsafe abortion.
Contraceptive use can prevent recourse to induced abortion and eliminate most of these deaths. Infant and child mortality and health: For infants children younger than 1 yearthe shorter the interval 18 months or lessthe greater the mortality risk.
Other studies reported that the birth of a younger sibling within 2 years of the index child was associated with a doubling of mortality at ages 1 - 2 years, and smaller adverse effects at ages 2 - 4 years.
The most prevalent method of contraception worldwide is surgical sterilisation.
Female sterilisation tubal sterilisation and male sterilisation vasectomy have immediate surgical risks, but the risks of death and serious morbidity are very small with tubal sterilisation and even lower with vasectomy.
Although the risk of pregnancy is low after tubal sterilisation, when pregnancy does occur, it is more likely to be ectopic; however, the absolute risk of ectopic gestation is lower than when no contraception is used.
|Gates of Vienna||Aging Services Older Americans Act The Administration on Aging and the programs authorized and funded by the Older Americans Act are extremely important to the states, their senior citizens, and their families. The National Conference of State Legislatures NCSL strongly supports Older Americans Act programs and believes that the services funded through this act should be both cost effective and responsive to the special needs of the elderly.|
Intrauterine devices IUDs are the most widely used modern method of reversible contraception. The risk of pelvic inflammatory disease is very low in women fitted with an IUD who have a low risk for sexually transmitted infections, but women with cervical chlamydial or gonococcal infections who have an IUD are at increased risk.
IUDs have been associated with a reduced risk of endometrial cancer, and a pooled analysis suggests a possible reduced risk of cervical cancer. Levonorgestrel-releasing IUDs reduce menstrual blood loss.This session gives you a sneak peek at some of the top-scoring posters across a variety of topics through rapid-fire presentations.
The featured abstracts were chosen by the Program Committee and are marked by a microphone in the online program. Social work’s history in the field of alcoholism and alcohol abuse ranges from providing food, temporary shelter, and the encouragement to practice “temperance” in the early 20th century, to today’s sophisticated treatment approaches involving medication, consumer-driven supportive treatment, abuse group-specific targeted prevention, and inpatient and outpatient treatment of alcoholism.
Coverage of more than 90 per cent was achieved, with a dramatic effect on all three; clusters of cases were often importations. Immunisation against a common cause of meningitis, Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib), was introduced into the routine programme in and by a national coverage of 95 per cent had been achieved.
WOA! World Population Awareness is a non-profit web publication seeking to inform people about overpopulation, unsustainability, and overconsumption; the impacts, including depletion of natural resources, water, oil, soil, fertilizers, species loss, malnutrition, poverty, displacement of people, conflict; and what can be done about it: women's advancement, education, reproductive health care.

It is very important for women to receive health care before and during pregnancy to decrease the risk of pregnancy complications. viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB can complicate pregnancy and may have serious consequences for a woman, her pregnancy outcomes, and her baby.
