    [Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso], Ministere de la Sante et de l'Action Sociale, Direction de la Sante Familiale, 1992. [3], xv, 48, [15] p.

    This report describes and presents preliminary results from an initial community study for a family planning (FP) expansion project in Burkina Faso. The study was conducted during May 1992 in 4 of 15 provinces retained for information, education, and communication (IEC) activities, with the goal of obtaining preliminary data on the knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) of the target population with regard to FP, their contact and understanding of the logo on population issues, and their opinion of health agents and social workers. 494 men and 506 women were interviewed by questionnaire. 40% of the study respondents were from Kadiogo, 30% from Yatenga, 20% from Kossi, and 10% from Namentenga. 73% were married and 26% were single. 64% were Muslim and 27% were Catholic. About half of the respondents had received no formal education, while 15% had attained a secondary school education. Recommendations are made with regard to increasing FP awareness among some target groups, inadequate FP knowledge and use in Yatenga, the limited knowledge about FP methods other than the oral pill and the condom, partner communication about FP, ideal family size, knowledge and use of modern contraceptives, intentions to practice FP in the future, the less than universal use of IEC by health agents and social workers, respondents doubts about the abilities and intentions of social workers, and the inability of many respondents to clearly associate the national FP logo with FP.
