HA NOI (VNS)— Making the public aware of the crisis looming over gender selection will be the main mission of National Action Month for Population, launched yesterday.
The General Office for Population and Family Planning launched the campaign to reduce sex imbalances at birth, especially in 11 provinces and cities with the highest rate.
The birth ratio of boys to girls in Viet Nam has increased to 112.3/100 from 110/100 six years ago.
The country is forecast to have 4 million more men than women in 40 years if no action is taken. — VNS
