Consequently, the governments in many developing countries have adopted vigorous family planning programs. It is difficult to reduce population growth in developing countries because these countries have a high proportion of young people in their populations, i.e., a high number of persons of reproductive age Family planning can reduce the risk of mortality associated with childbirth. Death in childbirth is almost 20 times as likely for each birth in developing countries as in developed countries. Many successive pregnancies magnify this risk If the demand of women in developing countries who wanted access to safe and effective family planning was met, it would reduce an estimated 100,000 maternal death and avert 67 million unintended.. The proportion of the need for family planning satisfied by modern methods, Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) indicator 3.7.1, was 75.7% globally in 2019, yet less than half of the need for family planning was met in Middle and Western Afric Ethical Issues pertaining family planning and population control in developing countries Family Planning and Population control policies can be argued to be paternalistic and thus restrict individual autonomy. Such paternalistic approach raise questions such as: can th
It was Melinda Gates' talk about the importance of family planning and access to contraception for women in developing countries. Why is this important? More than 200 million women in developing countries who want to use contraceptives don't have access to it according to the United Nations Population Fund and Guttmacher Institute , and it is a key factor in reducing poverty

. In developing countries, 270 million women who desire to avoid pregnancy are not using safe family planning methods. Yet, many of these women want to limit their family size or increase spacing between children Young women who reside in developing countries often face insurmountable challenges when seeking reproductive health care. No developing country has enough medical resources to meet the complete reproductive health care needs of all of its women of fertile age. Most have some family planning clinics, usually situated in large cities, and some have an extensive network of smaller clinics. These.
Another study of DHS data from 54 developing countries found that family planning was among the most inequitably distributed interventions in maternal, newborn, and child health, with 67% of people in the top economic quintile reporting their needs were satisfied, compared with 41.4% of people in the bottom economic quintile women in developing countries want to limit childbearing but are unable to do because of unmet needs, resources, limited access, religious beliefs, poor availability of facilities, lack of education and family planning services. In recent times, family planning is one of the major areas of interest which needs to be addressed and acted upon Family planning also saves women's lives. Worldwide, over 215 million women want access to family planning supplies but do not have access and we want to change this alarming statistic. Male involvement in family planning is important, as is integration into other health services, including HIV/AIDS, nutrition and immunization The importance of planning is not always obvious to everyone. In fact there is a view that suggests that only developing countries have development plans. In fact developed countries will tell you that they do not do development planning; they tell you that they just somehow do what they need to do without a plan Family planning was and still is seen as a tool to not only help lower overall global fertility rates but also aid increasing the economic and social development in many countries, particularly in developing nations by lowering health risks associated with pregnancy and childbirth to women and children
responsible for the minimal success of family planning with women as the only target was the ignorance of males (husbands and partners of female clients). A lot of factors may be assigned why the practice of family planning has not witnessed the desired impact in developing countries especially Ghana family planning, to define the field of family planning communication, and to point out directions for future research (p. 41). Rogers built on basic communication models to explore the nature of communication for purposes of family planning in developing countries. He concluded that mass media, and specifically, television had not been full Many countries with low levels of demand for family planning satisfied with modern methods are projected to witness rapid growth in the population of women aged 15 to 49 years through 2030
in high-fertility countries to warrant a family planning services—or sup-ply-side—approach. To deal with this skepticism and to determine the extent of demand for fertility regulation, surveys on knowledge, attitudes, and practices re-garding family planning were mounted in various parts of the developing Family planning programs have success in developing countries, but need to be expanded. While many researchers generally credit the desire for smaller families for the decline in fertility rates. Sign the pledge: I pledge to support more access to family planning services in developing countries. This access is important because it can reduce poverty, promote economic growth by improving family well-being, increase gender equality, prevent the spread of HIV and improve the quality of life for millions of children and families Family planning is arguably one of the most important public health advancements in the last century, and it is defined as a woman's ability to decide if and when to have children. Family planning services include counseling, education, access to contraception, and access to safe abortion. The positive effects of family planning are evident. In early 2010, researchers with the Futures Group in Washington, DC, estimated the demographic impact of meeting unmet family-planning demand in 99 developing countries and one developed one. The researchers excluded China, on the assumption that government population policies aimed at limiting most families to a single child rule out births.
built upon decades of clinical and community networking and partnering, while developing lasting collaborative relationships with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) and a variety of public and private sector partners. In 1960, the Pathfinder Fund supported the founding of the Tanzanian Family Planning Association (UMATI) Unmet need for family planning points to the gap between women's reproductive desire to avoid pregnancy and contraceptive behaviour. An estimated 222 million women in low- and middle-income countries have unmet need for modern contraception. Despite its prevalence, there has been little rigorous research during the past fifteen years on reasons for this widespread failure to implement. Family Planning in Developing Countries Maureen Lewis and Genevieve Kenney In harnessing the private sector to provide more family planning services to both middle and low income people, governments can use incentives to stimulate private sector investment and can ensure quality control through regulation FP2020 is a global partnership to empower women and girls by investing in rights-based family planning. The platform FP2020 has built is resilient, inclusive, and effective. Most importantly, countries are in the driver's seat

People do not have income to afford meal for twice a day and also cannot afford to buy family planning devices and services such as Condom, Pills, IUCD, and Norplant or to carry out sterilization The implementation of family planning programs in developing countries has followed two different models. Asian programs benefited from a strong government commitment to family planning, which implied the participation of the public sector, with a top-down and sometimes authoritarian implementation family planning programs worldwide. Global funding for family planning tripled during the 1970s and early 1980s - and by the mid-1990s, large-scale family planning programs were active in 115 countries (Cleland et al., 2006). Remarkably, the total fertility rate in developing countries also fell by more than half over this period (Sinding, 2007) Previous analyses have emphasised the crucial importance of family planning to achieve a range of health and other development objectives in developing countries. This Viewpoint focuses on the successful implementation of services in Ethiopia, Africa's second most populous country. Ethiopia's encouraging experience could challenge the widely held assumption that a decline in fertility must be.
In Population Policy in Transition in the Developing World, also published in the population issue of Science, authors John Bongaarts and Steven Sinding explain why there has been renewed interest on family planning in developing countries. Since rapid population growth in the poorest countries is hampering development, economists, once notably skeptical, increasingly acknowledge that. contraception among women in developing countries. Information and counseling to help women and couples learn about all FP methods available to them could help meet the current unmet need (Sedgh & Hussain, 2014).

Family planning programs have been in place for more than 30 years in many regions of the world. In the industrial nations whose donations and technical assistance support these programs, they have been relatively noncontroversial and have enjoyed broad political support throughout most of their history Urban planning in developing countries gets a lot of attention, but youth involvement in this process, says guest blogger Lisa Nyamadzawo, is imperative to a successful city. The increasing urban challenges currently faced in both developed and developing countries are evident that there is something missing in urban planning. Over the last century, planning has become a discipline. Providing family planning information, consultation and services is an important measure in promoting family planning. The Chinese government attaches great importance to meeting the various and multi-level needs of people of child-bearing age by relying on progress in science and technology, and the study and development of the methods of. All family planning methods can and should be offered at this level. Sterilization can be done both by minilaparotomy and laparoscopy by the doctors and gynecologists at this level. A training and research role in family planning at these levels is of capital importance. Causes of family planning programme failure in developing countries
Significant efforts are being made and substantial progress has been achieved in several developing countries to reduce fertility and increase birth spacing . Family planning services still need to be fully integrated with other health and nutritional services for women of childbearing age In the same vein, many developing countries like Korea, Brazil, Columbia, China, India and Bangladesh have successfully applied family planning programs as a panacea for overpopulation. Nigeria has also adopted family planning strategy to curb the high rate of population growth that it is presently experiencing During a similar time frame, facility deliveries increased from 39% to 72% in Burkina Faso and from 43% to 64% in Kenya. 21 As countries continue to strengthen facility-based childbirth care, this will be an increasingly important platform to reach women and their partners with family planning services Despite the United Nations declaring birth control to be a universal human right, 222 million women in developing countries are still left without Family Planning methods (ThinkProgress). Less fortunate countries have difficulty providing birth control because of costs and social disapproval
The socioeconomic impact of female education constitutes a significant area of research within international development.Increases in the amount of female education in regions tends to correlate with high levels of development. Some of the effects are related to economic development.Women's education increases the income of women and leads to growth in GDP The Contribution of Health Economics to Health Planning. Health planning is basically about choice: choice between one future or another; choice between various ways of achieving that future. Health economics is also interested in choice, so there is an obvious affinity between health economics and health planning Population education has gradually gained acceptance as an important part of the school curriculum in most developing countries of the world. However, a lot still needs to be done if this relatively new field is to become both institutionalized and strengthened substantively to the point that its impact can be felt over a long-term period India, officially the Republic of India (Hindi: Bhārat Gaṇarājya), is a country in South Asia.It is the second-most populous country, the seventh-largest country by land area, and the most populous democracy in the world.

Many women in SSA countries know the important role played by Family Planning (FP) in preventing unwanted pregnancies, but what they may not know is its role in planning and improving the lives and families of the users . In developing countries, it was estimated in 2012 that 222 million women had an unmet need for FP mechanisms are therefore an issue for those developing family planning programmes. Hence, in developing family planning programmes, governments need to weigh up the cost delivery of mechanisms versus their effectiveness and theneed to provide access to all (Barberis & Harvey, 1997)

Achievements in Public Health, 1900-1999: Family Planning. During the 20th century, the hallmark of family planning in the United States has been the ability to achieve desired birth spacing and family size ().Fertility decreased as couples chose to have fewer children; concurrently, child mortality declined, people moved from farms to cities, and the age at marriage increased (1) associated with a leveling off in contraceptive use, the demand for family planning, and the number of wanted births. This report presents a comparative analysis of family planning at the national level for 35 developing countries in four regions around the world, using data from the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) The World Health Organization, the Population Council and Family Health International have played an important role in supporting collaborative studies for the development, introduction and evaluation of family planning methods in developing countries Public health officials have advocated the involvement of men as a strategy for addressing the dismal performance of family planning (FP) programmes. This study was therefore designed to explore the challenges and determine way forward to male involvement in FP in Olorunda Local Government Area, Osogbo, Nigeria. This cross-sectional study involved the use of a four-stage sampling technique to. Information on factors influencing male involvement in family planning practice was obtained through administering a structured questionnaire and conducting in- depth interviews. A total of 218 men aged 18- 60 years were interviewed. The results indicated that respondents were highly (85.3%) aware of modern contraceptives but contraceptive use.
DKT International, one of the largest private providers of family planning and reproductive health products and services in developing countries, recently released the 2013 Contraceptive Social Marketing Statistics. This annual report details sales of 85 social marketing organizations around the world Family planning enables women who wish to limit the size of their families to do so. By reducing rates of unintended pregnancies, contraception also reduces the need for unsafe abortion. Family planning is a low-cost and effective way to save lives. Contraceptive supplies cost, on average, about US$1.55 per user annually in developing countries In the developing countries millions of women in the reproductive age who don't use contraceptives prefer to postpone or limit their birth. This indicates their failure to take necessary decision to prevent and avoid unwanted pregnancy. A community-based cross sectional household survey was conducted to investigate unmet need for family planning and associated factors and total demand for. They note that those developing countries, which have successfully been able to establish industries and advancements in technology thus catch-up with developed countries by adopting the latter's technology. This is the same argument put forward by Vernon's life cycle model (1966), which emphasises that the cost of production is a critical.

By 2050, nearly 85 percent of global energy generation is projected to come from renewables ( IRENA, 2018 ). Developing countries built more clean energy than fossil-fueled, power-generating capacity for the second year in a row, as reported by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). This momentum, however, is being challenged by a growing and. This contribution studies the variation in desired family size and excess fertility in four East African countries by analyzing the combined impact of wealth, education, religious affiliation, and place of residence. The findings show an enormous heterogeneity in Kenya. Wealthy and higher educated people have fertility desires close to replacement level, regardless of religion, while poor. Pandemic preparedness and response are quintessential global public goods: unless the new coronavirus is controlled everywhere, the risk of pandemic resurgence remains.
