The Directorate of Health will be celebrating International Day of the Girl Child on October 11, 2023 at Auditorium of Institute of Menezes Braganza at 10.00 a.m. onwards.
The declining number of girls in our population is a matter of great concern. One of the reasons is the practice of Gender Biased Sex Selection. To keep an eye on this evil practice the government has launched the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Scheme and PCPNDT Act. The mindset of the people should be changed towards a girl child.
