    Final report to the Regional Council on the Migrant and Planned Parenthood Project.

    International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF]. Europe Region

    London, England, IPPF, Europe Region, 1982. 62 p.

    The final report of the Migrants and Planned Parenthood (MPP) Project, a cooperative effort between the European Region of International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), Pro Familia, and other European Planned Parenthood Associations (PPA), is presented. Increasing contact with migrant clients stimulated Pro Familia to ask IPPF to evaluate existing family planning services for migrants and consider transnational coordination and sociopolitical action in this area. 13 countries were represented in this project: 4 donor countries (Italy, Portugal, Turkey, and Yugoslavia); 7 recipient countries (Belgium, Federal Republic of Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom); and 2 through correspondence (France and Ireland). 2 questionnaires were administered. The 1st was aimed at detailing European migratory movements and the ethnicity of target groups in each country; the 2nd explored PPA attitudes toward migrant clients and the need for migrant-specific services. Project conclusions were based on a series of plenaries and sub working group meetings held during 1981-82. (Reports of these meetings are included as Appendices to the final report.) It is recommended that the MMP Project continue until a Regional Policy Statement can be produced. The Regional Council is requested to develop a handbook of general guidelines for migrant work and should nominate a nonsalaried regional migrant ombudsperson. Each PPA is requested to select a liaison person for migrant work. Other tasks proposed for PPAs include: personnel training, production of educational materials for migrants, and cooperation with migrant's organizations. Family planning and health should be integrated into general migrant services offered by other institutions. PPAs in donor countries should consider special programs for groups affected by migration, e.g., wives remaining behind and returning migrants. Discussions are to be held on how to reach illiterate migrants and develop wider channels of materials distribution. Future workshops may be scheduled to train family planning personnel to work with migrants. In terms of services, PPA personnel are warned that problems outside the scope of family planning are likely to be encountered in work with migrants. Attention should be given to making services more accessible. Possible measures include mobile clinics, domiciliary services, provision of interpreters, and child care. The need for sex segregation and use of female personnel is also stressed.

    Training manual for population/family welfare educators.

    Zambia. Ministry of Labour and Social Services

    [Unpublished] 1982. 99 p.

    In 1978, a project of labor and family welfare education was launched in Zambia in the Ministry of Labour Social Services. It was financed by the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) and executed by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). One of the important tasks initiated by the project expert was the preparation of a self-contained teaching manual for the use of labor educators in conducting training in labor, population and family welfare for the workers at the grassroots level. This publication is the culmination of that effort. It is divided into 3 sections: education and learning, population and development, and family welfare concepts. Topics covered include: educational meetings; communication aids; information and publicity; national population issues and the worker's quality of life; population dynamics and the quality of life; migration; family economics; meeting basic needs; and methods of contraception. Although the manual is addressed to and based on the specific situation in Zambia, the experience gained under the ILO's Population and Labour Policies Programmes elsewhere has also been used wherever relevant. Similarly, although the manual is intended for specific use in Zambia, it should be possible to use it elsewhere with necessary adaptations.
