New York, New York, The Population Council, 1988. 60 p. (International Programs Working Paper no. 22.)

The purpose of this paper is to determine whether a focus on quality of family planning services is consistent with meeting demographic objectives. An analytical framework that links the 6 elements of quality with fertility is described. A review of existing literature and analysis presented in the paper suggests that improvements in quality of family planning services through enhancement in the choice of contraceptive methods available in a country would increase the overall use of contraception and thus would result in fertility reduction.
