Population Council, New York, NY.
This report presents a comprehensive review of empirical findings from postpartum research undertaken to date, particularly in respect to the International Postpartum Family Planning Program established by the Population Council in 1966. It is related to a forthcoming report summarizing findings in the field of family planning evaluation. The format is a list of postpartum findings, the evidence for which is briefly indicated. These have greater or lesser substantiation, but all are considered to be sufficiently supported to be included. Major findings examine the advantages of the postpartum approach, the potential for success of postpartum family planning programs, results of the international program, program experience with immediate IUD acceptance, the acceptors or women accepting contraceptive devices, continuation in the use of contraceptive devices, and the future of the International Postpartum Family Planning Program. Bibliographic references are included. (BL)
