    Statement by the Head of Delegation of the Republic of Korea at the International Conference on Population (ICP).

    Korea, Republic of. Ministry of Health and Social Affairs

    [Unpublished] 1984 Aug. Presented at the International Conference on Population, Mexico City, August 6-13, 1984. 3 p.

    In a 5-year plan, the Korean government has integrated family planning programs, including maternal and child health, medical insurance, and social welfare programs, into its primary health ervices in order to reach its hard-core low-income residents in both urban and rural areas. The Korea Women's Development Institute was established in 1982 to enchance the status of women, and the Labor Standard Law has been revised to try to overcome deep-rooted son-preference among Korean parenst. Migration out of rural areas is creating rural manpower problems, and stepped-up rural community development programs are planned. Population predictions by the mid-21st century stand at 61 million, too great for a country with such limited natural resources to support. Korea recommends an exchange of information on population and development between all countries, the setting aside of 1% of each country's annual budget for national population programs, and convening the world population conference every 5 instead of every 10 years so that more progress can be made in solving the problem.

    Shim DS

    [Unpublished] July, 1979. 49 p.

    This study assesses the effectiveness of family planning education in the Republic of Korea over the past 2 decades. Target populations in various metropolitan areas were studied regarding attitudes toward family planning knowledge, contraceptive behavior, media and personal contacts on family planning, number and gender preferences, and spacing preferences. Socioeconomic and demographic factors were taken into account. Statistics were compiled by area and analyses are presented. Use of more mass media is suggested to get information on family planning across to more people. It is important to extend the range and quality of family planning services, most especially to provide the best information about contraceptive methods.

    Integrating nutritional and family planning education with food services in Korean day care centers--an evaluation.

    SUNG K-T

    Public Health Reports. 1978 Mar-Apr; 93(2):177-185.

    The Integrated Day Care Program (IDCP) was established in Korea with the aid of international organizations in 1973. The IDCP aimed to provide services in the following areas: 1) nutritional food services for the children; 2) nutrition education for the mothers; and 3) family planning education. A survey was conducted in 1975 among a random sampling of 30 day care centers participating in the IDCP and 15 nonparticipating centers. The survey results show consistent differences in favor of the IDCP centers. Acceptability of the food service being provided was higher. Mothers from the participating centers had better nutrition knowledge than the other mothers. Among the IDCP mothers, the knowledge of, attitudes toward, and practice of family planning was much higher. In the 2-year period since initiation of the IDCP, there had been increases in the following indices: child's weight, mother's assessment of the child's general health, age when the child began to be fed baby food, and practice of family planning. It is recommended that the IDCP be extended to more day care centers.
