IMBONEZAMURYANGO / FAMILLE SANTE DEVELOPPEMENT. 1992 Dec; (25):26-8.In this article in Kinyarwanda, author Modeste Ntandokorano reports briefly on UN Population Fund activity during 1991. According to the report, the population and family planning programs began to show encouraging results. Although the fertility rate is still high, it shows a tendency to decline. In certain countries such as Thailand, Norway, and South Korea, the rate has declined significantly. According to the report, the average number of births per woman in the developing world has declined from 6 during the period 1965-70 to 3.8 today--a decline of over 37%. Considering the difficult circumstances prevailing in most developing countries, these are remarkable results that have already permitted world population to be smaller by more than 400 million than it would have been otherwise. The author ends with an exhortation to institutions and governmental or nongovernmental organizations that make or support population and family planning programs to reinforce their support to these programs and reorient their strategies, because according to the author, population and family planning programs have arrived at a turning point.
