Every July 11th is World Population Day. World Population Day aims to raise awareness of various demographic issues, such as family planning, gender equality, poverty, maternal health and the importance of human rights. Dr. K.C.

Celebrate World Population Day at the international level by organising various events and events to attract the attention of the masses and work together on population growth. Activities include seminar discussions, educational information conferences and composition competitions.
In terms of population, the largest countries in the world are China and India. Both countries now have a population of more than 1 billion. The United States ranks third with less than 325 million residents.
