The Integration of Family Planning and Maternal-Child Health Programs in Rural Areas: A Developing Approach.
Lapham, Robert J.
The functional integration of maternal and child health (MCH) services with family planning programs in rural areas is discussed in this report. Suggestions for the successful implementation of research demonstration projects are provided. Evaluation procedures are discussed in terms of collection of pre-project information, service statistics, follow-up survey on acceptors of health services and family planning, surveys of women of childbearing age, special studies, birthrate and death-rate registration or estimation procedures, special efforts to obtain information on reasons for use or nonuse of the program services, cost analysis, and control areas. It was noted that MCH-based, family planning research demonstration projects of major size are just beginning in rural areas of developing societies. A major conclusion is that careful planning of the evaluation of these projects is essential. (PS)
