Asian Pacific Women: Cultural Aspects of Family Planning. A Study by the Asian Women's Health Project.
Iwataki, Linda Miya
The Asian Women's Health Project undertook four activities to develop a model for delivery of family planning services to Asian and Pacific women: (1) a key informant survey was used to collect data from Asian and Pacific community, social, and health workers currently serving Asian and Pacific men and women; (2) an information and referral review surveyed administrators and practitioners who provided family planning services within or near a Californian Asian and Pacific community, in order to identify problems in family planning service delivery; (3) a consumer survey was administered to 200 Asian and Pacific women to identify their needs and preferences; and (4) a statistical search and literature review were undertaken to identify, review, and analyze recent demographic data and health statistics on Asian and Pacific women in the Los Angeles area. Recommendations were made to Federal and California State and local agencies in order to resolve difficulties resulting from underutilized services and the lack of bilingual/bicultural health personnel and health education information. Data collection tools and statistical information are appended. (Author/MK)
