Mexico adheres to the agenda of this meeting in keeping with the country’s forty-year-old tradition of demographic policies.

Efforts in policies of this nature in Mexico yielded significant progress, such as the reduction of the average number of children per family and the decrease in maternal mortality índices, phenomena that were deeply rooted in Mexican society.

The National Population Program, a cross-cutting government strategy, is designed to meet the challenges of the demographic transition.

Society’s structure changes quickly, which is why Mexico must plan the future in a strategic, responsible manner in order to meet the demands derived from this population dynamic.

All this is designed to ensure that every man, woman, child, adolescent and senior citizen has the tools and conditions required to grow, progress and lead decent lives.
