Among those who stay, fertility rates are below are significantly below population-replacement levels. The social and economic implications of an ageing population are becoming increasingly apparent, and these trends have raised alarm among politicians, economists and the public.

World Mental Health Day 2019

Message from UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem on World Mental Health Day, 10 October 2019
