Did the “free media” highlight Iran’s family planning miracle?

Iran — home to world’s largest condom factory in the 1990s, and boasting a compulsory pre-marriage sex education for both bride and groom — has a highly educated population with access to advanced public healthcare systems.

Ever since Professor Malek Afzali designed Iran’s family planning miracle, the country saw the fastest drop in babies per woman.

Having smaller families not only guarantees better child education and focus on health, but also highlights the state’s progress in curbing birth rates.

How many in the West know that women in Iran choose to have fewer babies today than the US?

The so-called “free media” hasn’t thrown its weight to reporting the remarkable progress a country with cultural differences has made. And journalists often fail to deliver incremental good news to question our static knowledge.
