A Decade of Family Planning Progress. Draper Fund Report No. 13.
Draper World Population Fund, Washington, DC.
World population growth and family planning progress in developing nations are discussed. The Draper Fund, established within the Population Crisis Committee (PCC) in 1975 to honor PCC's principal founder, encourages and funds activities which promise the greatest impact in slowing world population growth. There are 10 articles and an editorial. The first article discusses the agenda of the U.N. International Conference on Population held in Mexico City in August of 1984. Attitudes toward family planning and ways to take family planning to the people are the foci of the second and third articles. Contraceptive technology is discussed in the fourth article. Articles 5 through 10 assess family planning programs in Africa, the Middle East, Southwest Asia, East and Southeast Asia, China, and Latin America and the Caribbean. The report concludes that despite important changes in public attitudes and official policies, progress has not been rapid or widespread enough to reduce population pressures in the majority of developing countries. Future efforts must be intensified. (RM)
