International Family Day (15/05)

International Day of Families, celebrated annually on May 15, was proclaimed by UN General Assembly resolution 47/237 in 1993.

The idea of establishing this holiday arose back in 1989, when, wanting to draw the attention of the public of different countries to the problems of the family, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 1994 the International Year of the Family, and in 1993 adopted a resolution on the establishment of today's holiday.

The establishment of this day aims to draw the attention of the public of the countries to the numerous problems of the family. And its holding provides an opportunity to raise awareness on issues related to families, and to deepen knowledge of the socio-economic and demographic processes that affect the situation of families.
