VOV.VN - Vietnam's population has grown to 96.2 million people, including 47.88 million males and 48.32 million females, as of April 2019.
Officials said letting the parents decide guarantees reproductive rights while posing challenges in controlling the population.
Several effective measures have been implemented to control the gender imbalance over the years, but in many areas of Vietnam the ratio of male to females at birth is still skewed.
Hanoi will crackdown and strictly fine those providing early gender indications of foetuses through ultrasound scans, said Nguyen Dinh Lan, deputy head of the city’s Population and Family Planning Department.
(VOV) - The disparity in Vietnam’s gender ratio at birth has not narrowed since 2009 and officially reached 112 boys to every 100 girls in 2012.
