The UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs projects the global population will reach 8 billion on November 15, 2022. This is a milestone for humanity. Advancements in health care and reductions in global poverty have led to lower maternal and child death rates and longer lifespans, culminating in a world with more people in it than ever before!

A world of 8 billion represents infinite possibilities.
