The “Two (children) is Enough” media campaign has recently been launched by Egypt’s Ministry of Social Solidarity, to raise awareness on the use of birth control and encourage family planning in Egypt.

Egypt's Social Solidarity Minister, Ghada Wali, launched on Sunday the preliminary media campaign for the family planning project

Announcing in a press release the importance of decreasing the population for the good of the country’s economic prosperity, Wali explained that the first phase of the project will focus on 2,257 villages in ten governorates including Behira, Giza, Fayyoum, Beni Suef, Minya, Assiut, Sohag, Qena, Luxor and Aswan. The minister added that the ministry is working with non-governmental entities to raise awareness for birth control among Egyptian women.

The project targets women covered by the Takaful program and it was mainly designed to encourage family planning, she added. 

In an effort to curb the increasing birth rates in the country, the Egyptian government is heading a number of family planning campaigns in several governorates. One of the projects includes a campaign, dubbed “She Is Capable” that was launched in July by the Ministry of Health and population, in several governorates. Family planning experts were there to help and volunteered as consultants.
