Most people and well-intended organizations think the only tool we have to lower global fertility, and thereby stop population growth, is to increase access to family planning supplies. But this is not fully correct.
Population Media Center takes a different view. We acknowledge the troubling reality of humanity's oversized and still expanding population — and create highly effective programs to solve the problem. Our efforts focus on specific attitudinal drivers of ongoing rapid population growth.
With 20+ years of experience, Population Media Center is committed to help global fertility fall to a sustainable level. Learn exactly what our analysis of this often-ignored sustainability issue reveals.

If somebody tries to tell you that population growth is "slowing down," ask them to explain the graphic on the left.
