London, International Planned Parenthood Federation, September 1966. 102 pThis report is based on questionnaires answered by 43 family planning associations in 42 countries. Most of the questions concerned the year 1964, which is considered the end of a chapter in family planning: It was the year before the loop and the year before the world woke up to the implications of family planning. The questionnaire and report cover 4 broad areas: 1) sources of income, 2) types of publicity, 3) clinic structure and personnel, including the usefulness of mobile vans, and 4) family planning methods available at clinics (their advantages and disadvantages, the type of patient, and methods of recruitment). Among the findings is that the amount of help an association is likely to get from outside sources varies directly with the status it holds in its own country. IPPF was the greatest source of outside training. Associations were particularly interested in training that emphasized the IUD and health and sex education. In publicity, religious and political factors were the most important influences. In addition, the amount and type of publicity depended upon money and on multiple-language problems, illiteracy, and the availability of the mass media. Most patients came from urban areas and belonged in the middle of the socioeconomic stratum. Figures showed that many new patients accepted foam tablets and vaginal foam, but that oral contraceptives and IUDs seemed to be the wave of the future.
Caribbean Medical Journal. 1966; 27(1-4):54-59.The broad objectives of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) are to convert people everywhere to accept family planning as an important element of responsible parenthood, to encourage the provision of locally controlled services facilitating the practice of family planning, and to help create a public awareness of all demographic and other aspects that will impel governments to accept a fully responsible role in this field. The IPPF also believes that family planning, element in maternal and child health services and that state or local authorities ought to take responsibility for these services. IPPF should continue to promote these objectives in countries lacking effective family planning programs in an effort to create a climate of opinion that will impel governments to act. As national governments accept responsibility for family planning services, planned parenthood groups will have to adjust and play a major complementary role. Among the tasks volunteer organizations can assume are: 1) stimulate, influence, and review government programs; 2) educate the public; 3) train volunteer and paid workers; 4) encourage the establishment of self-perpetuating family planning services in various social units; 5) establish, in urban areas, reporting systems so that every woman who has recently delivered a child can be advised; and 6) establish model clinics to test new contraceptive methods and training, organization, and motivation techniques. In general, IPPF can help humanize mass programs and provide feedback before potential problems grow too large. The extent of the role IPPF can play, however, will depend on the extent of financial contributions from governments, foundations, and private contributors.
