Population

In 2010, world population stood at 6.9 billion and life expectancy reached 69 years in all of the world’s regions except Africa. Ninety-one per cent of reproductive rights were incorporated into the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Violence against Women, and over 6,000 communities in eight countries rejected the practice of female genital mutilation. The United Nations provided support to countries carrying out the 2010 round of population censuses, to countries implementing programmes aimed at preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS, and to areas in need of emergency obstetric and newborn care, family planning, and neonatal care.
