[Unpublished] February 16, 1972. 62 pA field trip was undertaken by an IPPF consultant to Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Malaysia for the following purposes: 1) to study present IPPF channels of distribution; 2) to examine present methods of commercial distribution of contraceptives and similar articles; and 3) to advise on customs, practices, and regulations which may affect contraceptive distribution. Each section on each country is divided into the following 5 parts: 1) persons visited; 2) the government program for family planning; 3) the IPPF-affiliate program; 4) miscellaneous facts in relation to supply and distribution of contraceptive supplies; and 5) conclusions and recommendations. General observations that apply to several or all of the countries visited include: 1) the need to pay more attention to supply distribution management systems; 2) the fact that the condom is the most underutilized product available to family planning programs; 3) commercial distribution of contraceptives is more effective than clinically-oriented distribution; and 4) people concerned about the general distribution of contraceptives should consider renting a distribution system.
