PV Desk : Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today called upon all concerned to ensure the optimum utilization of service infrastructures at grassroots in the case of reproductive healthcare, family planning, maternal and child healthcare services.
She urged the private organisations, mass media and conscious individuals and institutions to come forward in this regard alongside the government.
The prime minister said these in a message on the eve of World Population Day.
Sheikh Hasina described the slogan of the day of this year “Family Planning, Empowering People, Developing Nations” a time befitting one.
She said there is no alternative to family planning for the overall development of Bangladesh.
Family planning plays an important role to ensure sustainable development and progress for a country, she added.
“If the recipients of family planning service increase, maternal and child mortality rate will reduce, unexpected pregnancy will be prevented and maternal health will remain good,” she said.
