    In: Proceedings of the Fourth Annual Scientific Meeting of the Sudan Fertility Control Association held at Friendship Hall, Khartoum, 23 February 1983, edited by Dr. A/Salam Gerais. [Khartoum], Sudan, Sudan Fertility Control Association, 1983. 47-8.

    This paper consists of narrations to accompany a slide show. The slide illustrating the I.F.F.H. concept of data collection presents an integrated approach. Another slide shows the FIGO recommended case record, which is accepted by the WHO. A family planning question arises before birth and after birth of the child, female sterilization, number of additional children wanted. The slide on birth interval behavior enables the study of current birth outcome as a function of breastfeeding, family planning and prenatal visits. The last birth interval can be studied with maternity care monitoring, breastfeeding, and the status of the last surviving infant, a key variable. Once you know how many children you have reached, you can go forward and study the next birth interval. The slide showing the model approach enables determination of the current perinatal death from knowledge of the last birth interval and loss of the last live birth. With the increase of education, breastfeeding is reduced; family planning before current conception increases, with education it doubles; prenatal care increases with education. The birth interval is prolonged in cases of breastfeeding without family planning. If family planning is used, there is a marked prolongation of the birth interval. 63% of women attending the 11 centers surveyed in Indonesia wanted additional children among those who had 3 living children postpartum. Only 38% of those with 4 children wanted additional ones. This 50% cut is known as the 50% LDC and varies according to geographic location. Using the LDC (developing countries), one can determine the proportion of women who do not want to protect themselves postpartum, and the relation of having more living children to seeking contraceptive protection.
