    Contraceptive projections and the donor gap. Meeting the challenge.

    Ross J; Bulatao R

    [Arlington, Virginia], John Snow [JSI], Family Planning Logistics Management Project, 2001 Apr. 20 p.

    This document addresses issues related to supplying just one type of reproductive health commodity: contraceptives. It begins with an analysis of current and future global demand for contraceptives and lays out the strategies for meeting this demand in those developing countries that depend on supplies from foreign donors. It provides an overview of current and projected contraceptive use from 87 developing countries, and reviews the factors that contribute to the growing demand for contraceptive supplies.

    Financing the delivery of contraceptives: the challenge of the next twenty years.

    Gillespie DG; Cross HE; Crowley JG; Radloff SR

    [Unpublished] 1988. Presented at the National Academy of Sciences, Committee on Population Conference on the Demographic and Programmatic Consequences of Contraceptive Innovations, Washington, D.C., October 6-7, 1988. 17, [15] p.

    The total cost of delivery of contraceptives is estimated to be over 9 billion dollars a year by 2010. The total amount needed to cover the costs for the next 2 decades of delivery is expected to exceed $110 billion. These estimates are the result of calculations based on demographic and program data and assumptions related to potential numbers of users, commodities, and delivery costs. The estimates reflect a conservative approximation of the financial needs of family planning commodities and services. Regardless of the underestimation, it is noted that any calculation will clearly reveal that contraceptive delivery costs over the next 2 decades will be immense. To meet growing needs and rising costs, resources must increase by at least $300 million each year. To answer the need for greater resources, certain ideas should be implemented: stimulation of new sources of investment, concentration on leveraged activities, improvements in efficiency of programs and improvement of contraceptive technology. If family planning and fertility control programs and goals are to succeed, these ideas should be studied, and an intrepid effort to raise the resources necessary to insure contraceptive delivery should be carried out.

    Philippine family planning chartbook: 1973.

    Philippines. Commission on Population

    Manila, Commission on Population and the University of Philippines Population Institute, August 1973. 65p

    In the Philippines, because of differential trends in fertility and mortality, the rate of natural increase--which may be viewed as a measure of population growth rate, since migration is negligible--rose to 32 per 1000 in 1960 from 12 per 1000 in 1903. Today 1/2 of the population is under 18 years of age, the completed family size is around 6 children, and the annual growth rate is 3.01%. The population problem of Filipinos, then, is a pressing one. This chartbook shows the effects of rapid population growth on socioeconomic development, and presents the measures taken to curb the growth rate. In 1973, family planning clinics were functioning in all major provinces. The acceptance rates from December 1969 to July 1973 ranged from nearly 400 per 1000 population in Manila to 140 per 1000 population in Southern Mindanao. During the same period, more than 1/2 of the acceptors chose the pill as their first method. Approximately 1 in 6 accepted the condom, 1 in 7 the IUD and 1 in 10 rhythm. The costs per couple year of protection present a general downward trend. From fiscal year 1960 to 1976, the growth rate is expected to decline from 3% to 2.57%.
