[Family planning: a global handbook for providers. Evidence-based guidance developed through worldwide collaboration]
Baltimore, Maryland, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for Communication Programs, 2008.  p. (WHO Family Planning Cornerstone)This new handbook on family planning methods and related topics is the first of its kind. Through an organized, collaborative process, experts from around the world have come to consensus on practical guidance that reflects the best available scientific evidence. The World Health Organization (WHO) convened this process. Many major technical assistance and professional organizations have endorsed and adopted this guidance. This book serves as a quick-reference resource for all levels of health care workers. It is the successor to The Essentials of Contraceptive Technology, first published in 1997 by the Center for Communication Programs at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. In format and organization it resembles the earlier handbook. At the same time, all of the content of Essentials has been re-examined, new evidence has been gathered, guidance has been revised where needed, and gaps have been filled. This handbook reflects the family planning guidance developed by WHO. Also, this book expands on the coverage of Essentials: It addresses briefly other needs of clients that come up in the course of providing family planning. (excerpt)
[Family planning programs in several African countries] Programmy planirovaniya semi v nekotorykh stranakh afriki.
Zdravookhranenie Rossiiskoi Federatsii. 1972 Mar; 16:32-35.The total population of the African continent is projected to contain 11.4% of the world population, and increase 150% by the year 2000. The need for a growth slowdown, by at least 1/3, is embodied in the family planning programs of many of these countries: Tunisia, Morocco, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Liberia, Ghana, Sierra Leone, and the United Arab Republic (UAR). The history of the family planning programs of the UAR, Tunisia, Morocco, Kenya, and Ghana is examined in order to compare the methods and effectiveness of their programs. The active role of the U.N. and WHO in supplying aid and personnel to these programs is pointed out. It is concluded that these programs cannot fully solve the problem of the burgeoning growth rate as they are related to socioeconomic problems many of which have their roots in colonialism, which require comprehensive, infrastructural solutions. Reeducation of the populations is seen as 1 of the main problems. The problem is deemed insolvable by artificial means.
