Healthline – A growing global population highlights the need for family planning resources, healthcare workers, and better access to healthcare.
The population of Planet Earth is expected to exceed 11 billion people by the end of the century, according to new official United Nations population projections.
At the moment, the global population is about 7.3 billion, an increase of a billion people in the past 12 years.
While the global population continues to grow, it’s doing so at a lower rate than before. Recently, the Earth’s inhabitants grew at 1.24 percent each year, while it’s currently down to 1.18 per year, creating an increase of 83 million people annually.
This continuing growth, as well as a growing number of people with unprecedented life expectancies, will create new and lasting challenges for healthcare worldwide.
