Should the state stop focusing on population control? | The Hindu Parley podcast

Published on December 7, 2021

India has a large young population which needs access to contraception, not family planning.

According to the recently released National Family Health Survey (NFHS)-5, India’s Total Fertility Rate (TFR), which is the number of children a woman would have in the course of her life, is 2, a decrease from 2.2 in NFHS-4. Is this cause for cheer and should women be credited with stabilising the population?

Here we discuss whether governments should stop focusing on population control.

Guests: S. Irudaya Rajan, chairman of the International Institute of Migration and Development; Poonam Muttreja, executive director of the Population Foundation of India
