The family is the basic unit of society. The process of rapid demographic and socio-economic change has influenced patterns of family formation and family life and has generated considerable change in the composition and structure of families. In this stage, we should try to find the answers of this question. How to protect our family dignity?

We need to figure out the interrelationships between populations, sustainable economic growth, and sustainable development. Specifically we are trying to solve and find the answers for these problems. a) Integrating population and development strategies. b) Population, sustained economic growth and poverty. C) population and environment. The final objective that we will need to consider, will be “The Family, Its Roles, Rights, Composition and Structure”

The AIDS pandemic is a major concern in both developed and developing countries, the objectives are to intensify research on methods to control the HIV/AIDS pandemic and to find an effective treatment for the disease . sex education and information should be provided to both those infected and those not infected, and especially to adolescents.
