Abstract

In reviewing the emergence, establishment, and maturation of family planning programs in Asia, this report concentrates on the countries of East, South, and Southeast Asia. The review is set against a dynamic backdrop of rapid population growth, spurred by rapidly declining mortality rates, and expanding opportunities for social and economic development. To understand why some programs have been more successful than others, it examines the characteristics of family planning organizations: their policy environment, financial and human resources, service infrastructure, and levels of service production and consumption. The final section postulates how the Asian family planning programs may evolve over the next half century in response to environmentally-induced change.
