This paper summarizes family planning activities and accomplishments during 1969 and 1970 in Morocco and Tunisia, and then sets forth 12 criteria that are utilized to evaluate the overall progress of the family planning programs in the two countries. These criteria serve to measure the readiness and prospects for the development of viable family planning programs capable of reaching and serving large numbers of women in the child bearing ages as well as some of the potential problems in development of such programs. Also included in the paper are two additional reports: Korea - The Relationship between IUD Retention and Check-up Visits and The Philippines - Family Planning Acceptors, January-June 1970. The first is concerned with the question of whether IUD retention can be improved by prompt check-up visits. The second discusses the achievements in family planning in the Philippines in 1970, the first year in which family planning was an official government policy and the first year in which there was a comprehensive system for gathering statistical reports on the various clinic systems operating.
