A Training Program for Supervisory Workers in Local Family Planning Programs: Final Report.
Kentucky Research Foundation, Lexington.
The scarcity of skilled administrative and supervisory personnel for planning, operating, and evaluating local family planning programs is a major problem in assisting the poor to plan their families in accord with their wishes. The purpose of the report is therefore to provide for private and governmental agencies a training program for these supervisory personnel. The training program is concerned with the presentation of technical, programmatic, and socio-cultural knowledge concerning family planning. It instructs supervisory personnel in methods of ascertaining the particular socio-cultural factors that may operate in the specific communities in which they work. Another aim is to acquaint supervisors with methods of selecting, training, and using nonprofessional aides in local family planning programs. (author/mf)
