The world celebrates World Population Day annually on July 11, which aims to focus attention on population issues in the context of comprehensive development plans and programs, and to find solutions to population problems related to the issues of demographic growth, health, education and services.
Statistics indicates that the State of Qatar has seen a noticeable improvement in the health status of population, as mortality rate dropped during the past years, from 1.88 per 1000 population in 2001 to 1.15 in 2010.
The percentage of births registered under supervision in the State of Qatar exceeded 99.9% yearly, due to that health services related to pregnancy and childbirth spread across the State.
Statistics also shows that there has been a decrease in infant, newborn, and under-5 mortality rates through the previous years. This decline is an important indicator for measuring the State’s progress in all aspects of life: social, economic and environmental; health status; and medical services.
