Need To Promote Awareness To Control Population

R. Ashok, Health Minister of Karnataka said that around 176 babies are born each minute worldwide. He was addressing a program on the occasion of World Population Day. The program was organized by the Department of Health and Family Welfare and Rashtriya Grameen Arogya Abhiyan in Bangalore.
