The African on 21 December reported that in the spirit of Delivering as One in Tanzania, three UN agencies – UNFPA, UNICEF and UNWomen - jointly launched their global reports together with the Adolescent in Tanzania report. Commenting during the launch, Speaker of the National Parliament, the Hon. Anne Makinda, said UNFPA’s global report focuses on “People and Possibilities in a World of 7 Billion,” the theme is particularly timely for Tanzania as we embark on the 2012 Population and Housing Census. “Population growth is a critical issue for Tanzania as it is with a number of other developing countries. Our country has one of the highest rates of population growth in the world; on average every Tanzania woman gives birth to five or six children,” Hon. Makinda further commented.
