This USAID-funded Health Policy Project presentation aims to raise awareness about the impacts of rapid population growth on Mozambique's socioeconomic development. It includes projections of population growth from 2015–2040 based on three hypothetical fertility scenarios: high fertility (5.9 children per woman, or status quo based on a 2011 baseline figure), medium fertility (4.5), and low fertility (3.0). Continued high-fertility growth will increase the pressure on Mozambique’s health, education, economic, and agricultural sectors to meet the population’s demand for basic needs. However, slowing population growth through increased use of family planning will allow the country to invest more in long-term measures to improve the quality of health services, guarantee universal education, expand employment opportunities, and attain food security. If strategically implemented, these measures could catalyze progress toward a healthier, more prosperous country.
