More measures are set to be taken by Hanoi authorities in the time ahead to improve the local population quality.
Hanoi will increase activities to improve its population quality in the time ahead, Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Health Hoang Duc Hanh stated on July 9.
Gender imbalance at birth will adversely affect population structure in the future, which leads to male surplus in society.
While population growth has slowed, the country is grappling with a slew of problems, including gender imbalance and an aging workforce.
Some four million men in Vietnam will have no chance of getting married by 2050 if the current imbalance in the nation’s sex ratio persists, experts say.
(VOV) - By April 1, 2014, Vietnam’s total population was estimated at 90,493,352, including 44,618,668 male (49.3%) and 45,874,684 female (50.7%).
The capital city of Hanoi is striving to better its policies on gender equality, and intensify inspections to stop gender selection in an effort to reduce the current high sex ratio at birth.
A cooperation programme was launched between the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) and the Ministry of Health (MoH) at an official ceremony in Hanoi on October 9 to promote gender equality and control sex imbalances at birth during the 2014-2020 period.
(VOV) - Vietnam will have to face with an astonishing redundancy of 2.3 to 4.3 million men unable to find wives to get married as gender imbalance in the sex ratio at birth increased from 106.2 boys /100 girls in 2000 to 113.8 boys/100 girls in 2013.
An increasingly skewed sex ratio, a decline in the use of contraceptives, and a sudden baby loom in the first five months all add up to a gloomy picture for family planning authorities.
