Perhaps the most important finding of this Zigone KAP survey was that about 50.3% (95% CI 46.2 - 54.2) of the married women of reproductive age were currently practicing modem methods of contraception.
For a country like Myanmar, where the government has until recently favored a pronatalist population policy, this is indeed surprising.
This 30 cluster survey, designed to determine the prevalence of various family planning methods adopted, as well as knowledge and attitudes, among villagers in rural Myanmar, covered a sample of 600 married women of reproductive age in Zigone township which has a population of 70,000.
The survey results showed a high awareness of specific contraceptive methods among the target group and the ever-use rate of birth spacing methods was about 54.% (95% CI 50.7 - 58.7).
