2018-19 THEME: BE THE INSPIRATION
1960 Philippines 28.5 million (3.05%/yr.) — Thailand 27.5 million (3.25%/yr.)
1975 Philippines 44.3 million (2.81%/yr.) — Thailand 42.3 million (2.65%/yr.)
1975 – Thailand initiates effective family planning programs; Philippines: none
2016 Philippines 102.6 million — Thailand 68.2 million
(1960-2016 – 360% Philippines population increase)
Thailand: World’s top exporter of rice per capita basis
2013 Gross annual income US$5,400 (#97)
Philippines: World’s top importer of rice per capita basis
2013 Gross annual income US$2,400 (#130)
(Note: Philippine Commission on Population lists 98.7 million people for 2013-a discrepancy of about 7 million. There are also an additional 12 million overseas Filipino workers)
Without an effective family planning program there will be an additional 50 million babies born in the Philippines in the next 37 years (between 2014-2050).
The more than 20,000 babies presently being born every month in the core Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) disaster-ravaged areas provide a preview of the suffering of the 50 million still unborn additional children and their mothers. Any disaster mitigation planning and reconstruction efforts – to be effective – must address this looming 50 million Filipino humanitarian crisis.
