  1. Attitude towards family planning in Dharan, east Nepal : implications for the family planning programme.

    Article - En anglais

    A survey of the knowledge, attitude and practice of family planning was conducted in Dharan, Nepal.

    The town offers a full range of family planning services free of charge.

    There was a strong desire to limit family size; 52-5% of couples were currently using some modern method of family planning.

    Of the current users, 62-3% had been sterilized, including 92-3% of those in the lowest socioeconomic group.

    Health risks and incompleteness of the family were the most common reasons for non-use of contraception, the latter reason reflecting ignorance of the temporary nature of some methods.

    There was a strong preference for male children and couples rarely used contraception until at least one son had been born.
