Family Planning Communication's in an Extension Low-Income Program.
Brand, W. Jean
This study explores the need for family planning information and communications in the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) of the Cooperative Extension Service, as perceived by program aides. Because of new needs, education for family planning and birth control has not been an officially recognized program area. From a national survey of aides, it was discovered that there was a high degree of ethnic and religious homophily between aides and clients, which is considered indicative of communicative reliability. Many women came to aides for help in family planning, and many were helped. Aides strongly believe in family planning. Based on the findings, a recommendation was made that an officially supported family planning education and information program be established by the Extension Service as a part of the EFNEP low-income program.
