Harvard Pop Center mourns loss of United Nations population agency Director Babatunde Osotimehin

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Babatunde Osotimehin, the director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and a staunch supporter of the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls around the globe. Osotimehin had a special connection to the Harvard Pop Center, having been a senior visiting fellow in the late ’90s who would return on special occasions to address critical global challenges connected to population growth patterns. Watch Babatunde Osotimehin present on the “promise of the youth dividend” during our 50th anniversary symposium.
