CAIRO: One administration said that Egypt's population increase of 14 folds somewhere in the range of 1882 and 2017 made a "public issue" considered very necessary.

Minister of Health and Population Delegate Tariq Tawfiq revealed that the number of individuals living in the country has increased from 6.7 million to 94.8 million over a period of 135 years.

He added that the rise has affected a lot of education, luxury and accessible assets, which has affected the overall social economy.

Tawfiq said, "(Population increase) is a general issue that must be understood through cooperation efforts between all service, legislative and non-administrative bodies and a common community.

He drew attention to the fact that the National Population Council has been working from now on drafting general strategy documents, as a team with the American University in Cairo (AUC) has indicated towards settling part of the issues related to population in the country.

Plans under preparation included awareness campaigns on household size, food and water security, and manageability.

Dr. Amr Hassan, the former reporter of the Chamber, said that the family arranging a project because it was sent before the specified date a year from now will help reduce the birth rate in Egypt by one million.

Egyptian Minister of International Cooperation Dr. Rania Al-Mashat, USAID Mission Director Leslie Reed, President of the American University in Cairo Francis Joseph Ricciardone, and Tawfiq recently delegated competition among youth in the Family Planning Program in Egypt (SEFPP), from an activity worth 31 million A dollar recently approved with the United States Agency for International Development to improve population welfare outcomes.

Al-Mashat said improving general medical care, conceptual well-being, and family arrangement are all vital factors for achieving people's critical reinforcement.

She drew attention to the fact that the competition among young people for SEFPP was directed towards preparing for the implementation of new and powerful answers to the issues and included the Egyptian government, educational institutions and colleges, youth, and common community associations that USAID spoke to.

The aim of the program was to address the issue of overpopulation through creative strategies, generate youth ideas about family planning plans, and highlight issues across the country.
