Birth Control Backlash

A sex ed scandal in Egypt highlighted increasing tension between tradition and practicality when a group of Egyptian university students created a sex ed magazine for a project and faced media outrage.
Sex ed was eliminated from schools in 2010, but officials have begun warning of a population explosion—a projected 140 million people by 2030—that will create an untenable situation for Egypt’s infrastructure and economy. With a lack of available contraceptives and education, the population expands by about 1 million births every 6 months. Major General Abu Bakr al-Gendy, head of Egypt’s national statistics center, says both will be key to curbing rampant population growth.
