Much evidence suggests that demand for sterilization is a function of supply of surgical sterilization services in less-developed countries.
If such services were greatly expanded, the number of procedures performed would grow dramatically.
While the prevalence of sterilization is estimated to increase from 23,5% to 28.8% of married women of reproductive age in the 1990s, there will actually be 106,432,000 more couples of reproductive age at the end of this decade than at its beginning who use either no method or a far less effective method with much lower continuation rates than sterilization-nearly a 20% increase.
