Rapid population growth in developing countries is of concern. Family planning is not practiced among vulnerable groups of marginalized communities. As a result, there is a lack of proper nourishment and a poor standard of hygiene. This stems from lack of education and awareness. To address this issue, SoSec’s consultants work closely with national health and welfare agencies in implementing projects aimed at increasing awareness and knowledge on population education.

We offer a wide range of consulting services, including high-quality technical assistance, program expertise, and analytical insights.
