    The Behavioral Ecology of Family Planning.Donna L. Leonetti, Dilip C. Nath & Natabar S. Hemam - 2007 - Human Nature 18 (3):225-241.
    Family planning is the usual modern route to producing a small family. Can human behavioral ecology provide a framework for understanding family planning behavior? Hillard S. Kaplan (Yearb. Phys. Anthropol. 39:91–135) has proposed a general theory of human parental investment based on the importance of skills development in children. As modern, skills-based, competitive market economies are established, parental investment strategies would be predicted to become oriented toward producing increasingly competitive offspring in a pattern of coordinated (...)

    Family Planning in Brazil: Why Not Tubal Sterilisation During Childbirth?L. C. Soares & J. L. A. Brollo - 2013 - Journal of Medical Ethics 39 (11):710-712.
    Sterilisation is the most desired method of contraception worldwide. In 1996, the Brazilian Congress approved a family planning law that legitimised female and male sterilisation, but forbade sterilisation during childbirth. As a result of this law, procedures currently occur in a clandestine nature upon payment. Despite the law, sterilisations continue to be performed during caesarean sections. The permanence of the method is an important consideration; therefore, information about other methods must be made available. Tubal sterilisation must not be (...)

    Male Participation in Family Planning: Results From a Qualitative Study in Mpigi District, Uganda.Angela Kaida, Walter Kipp, Patrick Hessel & Joseph Konde-Lule - 2005 - Journal of Biosocial Science 37 (3):269-286.
    The aim of this study was to determine men’s perceptions about family planning and how they participate or wish to participate in family planning activities in Mpigi District, central Uganda. Four focus group discussions were conducted with married men and with family planning providers from both the government and private sector. In addition, seven key informants were interviewed using a semi-structured interview guide. The results indicate that men have limited knowledge about family (...), that family planning services do not adequately meet the needs of men, and that spousal communication about family planning issues is generally poor. However, almost all men approved of modern family planning and expressed great interest in participating. The positive change of the beliefs and attitudes of men towards family planning in the past years has not been recognized by family planning programme managers, since available services are not in line with current public attitudes. A more couple-oriented approach to family planning is needed. Measures could include, for example, recruiting males as family planning providers, offering more family planning counselling for couples, and promoting female-oriented methods with men and vice versa.

    From Family Planning to Population Policy: A Paradigm Shift in Serbian Demography at the End of the 20th Century.Rada Drezgic - 2008 - Filozofija I Društvo 19 (3):181-215.
    This paper traces changes in the dominant paradigm of Serbian demography that took palace in the context of major socio-political changes during the late twentieth century. The changes are traced both in the realm of research and social policy. It is argued that demographic transition theory remained the main explanatory model but that its modified version which gives precedence to ideational vs. structural variables gained the dominant status. In the realm of social policy the ideology of family planning (...)

    The Impact of Mass Media Family Planning Programmes on Current Use of Contraception in Urban Bangladesh.M. Kabir & M. Amirul Islam - 2000 - Journal of Biosocial Science 32 (3):411-419.
    A sample of 871 currently married urban Bangladeshi women was used to assess the impact of mass media family planning programmes on current contraceptive use. The analyses suggested that radio had been playing a significant role in spreading family planning messages among eligible clients; 38% of women with access to a radio had heard of family planning messages while the figures for TV and newspaper were 18·5% and 8·5% respectively. Education, number of living children (...)

    Respecting Autonomy in Population Policy: An Argument for International Family Planning Programs.B. S. Hale & L. Hale - 2010 - Public Health Ethics 3 (2):157-166.
    This paper addresses whether universal, general education programs are enough to satisfy basic criteria of human rights, or whether comprehensive family planning programs, in conjunction with universal education programs, might also be morally required. Even before the Reagan administration instituted the ‘global gag rule’ at the 1984 conference in Mexico City, prohibiting funding to nongovernmental organizations that included providing information about abortion as a possible method of family planning, the moral acceptability of family planning (...)

    The Impact of Family Planning Supply Factors on Unmet Need in Rural Egypt 1988ð1989.Fiona Steele & Fatma El-Zahraa M. M. Geel - 1999 - Journal of Biosocial Science 31 (3):311-326.
    This paper examines the reasons for the high level of unmet needfor contraception in rural Egypt, using data from the individual survey andservice availability module of the 1988Ð89 Egypt Demographic and HealthSurvey. Two broad sets of potential factors are considered: characteristics ofa woman which influence her desire for children and thus her propensity touse contraception, and factors relating to the family planning serviceenvironment in which she lives. The results from a multivariate analysis showthat certain individual characteristics, such as (...)

    Attitudes of Men Towards Family Planning in Mbeya Region, Tanzania: A Rural[Hyphen]Urban Comparison of Qualitative Data.Eleuther A. Mwageni, Augustine Ankomah & Richard A. Powell - 1998 - Journal of Biosocial Science 30 (3):381-392.
    Family planning programmes in Tanzania date back to the 1950s. By the early 1990s, however, only 5[hyphen]10% of women of childbearing age used contraceptives in the country. Low contraceptive prevalence in Tanzania is reportedly attributable to men's opposition to family planning. This paper employs focus groups to explore the role of Tanzanian men in family planning. More specifically, it presents a rural[hyphen]urban comparison of the attitudes of men in Mbeya region, Tanzania, to family (...)

    It's All in the Timing: Coital Frequency and Fertility Awareness-Based Methods of Family Planning.Irit Sinai & Marcos Arévalo - 2006 - Journal of Biosocial Science 38 (6):763-777.
    Fertility awareness-based methods of family planning help women to identify the days of the cycle they should avoid unprotected intercourse to prevent pregnancy. Therefore using fertility awareness-based methods influences the timing of sexual activity, which may affect the nature of the sexual relationship. Data are used from the clinical trials of two fertility awareness-based methods to determine the frequency and timing of intercourse during the cycle, and the determinants of coital frequency. The mean coital frequency of study participants (...)

    Patrilineal Family Values, Family Planning and Variation in Stature Among Taiwanese Six-Year-Olds.B. Floyd - 2003 - Journal of Biosocial Science 35 (3):369-384.
    It has been argued that patrilineal joint family systems tend to bias family planning decisions in favour of sons. A simple model suggests that in such societies, any given son will be more highly valued by his parents (1) the fewer his brothers and (2) the earlier his birth is in the brother series. A daughter's value will be greater (1) the fewer brothers she has and (2) the earlier her birth is relative to other sisters. This (...)

    Diversity in Family Planning Use Among Ethnic Groups in Guatemala.Sofie de Broe, Andrew Hinde, Zoë Matthews & Sabu S. Padmadas - 2005 - Journal of Biosocial Science 37 (3):301-317.
    This study investigates the ethnic differentials in contraceptive use in the north-eastern Ch’orti area of Guatemala, a region dominated by the Ladino culture. Data come from a household survey and in-depth interviews with service providers carried out in 2001 in the town of Jocotán, and a survey carried out in 1994 in two nearby indigenous villages (aldeas). Descriptive analysis and logistic regression are used to explore the data. Previous DHS surveys have used dress and language to classify ethnic groups. In (...)
