Family planning needs: new opportunities, emergency contraception and other new technologies
D'Arcangues, Catherine ( 2001-01-01 )

Modern contraception is considered to be one the major advances of the 20th century. Yet, as the next century begins, it is estimated that there is still a largely unmet need for contraception, with millions of couples worldwide who express a wish to limit the number of their children but do not use or are not satisfied with their contraceptive method. While the reasons are numerous, it is clear that there is a need for improved and new methods which are easier to use, under the user's control, with fewer side-effects and responding to the needs of different groups of users, including men. To respond to this need, current contraceptive research and development efforts focus on five main areas: emergency post-coital methods, user-controlled long-acting methods, dual protection methods against both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, methods for men, and methods with fewer side-effects including some that are more targeted to specific reproductive biological events. A number of leads are presented which are at various stages of development. Concluding remarks stress the numerous challenges of contraceptive development, not the least of which is the vision required of what the needs of future generations will be, since it takes 10-15 years to bring a new contraceptive to the market. More fundamentally, overall progress towards reducing the unmet need for contraception will depend on the status of women, specifically their decision-making power, and access to education and income.

Family planning services and programmes in countries of the Eastern Mediterranean Region
Chichakli, L.O.; Atrash, H.K.; Musani, A.S.; Johnson, J.T.; Mahaini, R.; Arnaoute, S. ( 2000 )

This paper presents the findings of a 1999 survey of 19 countries of the World Health Organization Eastern Mediterranean Region on the family planning services and programmes in the Region. Data were collected using a questionnaire which explored the following areas: the presence of population or family planning policies and family planning activities, the family planning services available, promotional and educational activities on family planning, quality assurance, family planning data collection, analysis and dissemination, and the use of such information. The results indicate that 13 of the countries have national policies on population and family planning but even in those that do not, family planning services are widely available. The scope of the services provided varied. There is still a need to implement or strengthen family planning programmes in the Region, a need which is recognized by the countries themselves

Family planning: choices and challenges for developing countries
Phillips, Sharon J; Mbizvo, Michael T ( 2014-05-10 )

While slow and uneven progress has been made on maternal health, attaining the 1994 Cairo International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) goal for achieving universal access to reproductive health remains elusive for many developing countries. Assuring access to sexual and reproductive health services, including integrated family planning services, remains a critical strategy for improving the health and well-being of women and alleviating poverty. Family planning not only prevents maternal, infant, and child deaths, but also empowers women to engage fully in socioeconomic development and provides them with reproductive choices. This paper will discuss the current landscape of contraception in developing countries, including options available to women and couples, as well as the challenges to its provision. Finally, we review suggestions to improve access and promising strategies to ensure all people have universal access to reproductive health options.

Family practice development strategies : report on the second WHO Meeting of the Expert Network, Warsaw, Poland 23-25 October 1995
WHO Meeting of the Expert Network (2nd: 1995: Warsaw, Poland); World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1995 )

Regulations governing health care delivery are changing; accountability for the cost of services and their effectiveness is increasing while expectations of and demands from users are growing. These and other factors are influencing the manner in which primary health care is delivered today. Qualified family practice, as the basis for first contact with the health care system is the preferred model in many countries of the European Region. However, the challenge of how to adequately train for family practice is still to be met. While the first WHO Meeting of the Expert Network on Family Practice Development (Ljubljana, 26-28 January 1995) defined retraining of PHC-based health care professionals as a fundamental strategy for the development of family practice in CCEE, the aim of this second meeting was to review the current situation and experience of different European countries in implementing this strategy as well as existing recommendations to further develop family practice in general, and retrain in particular. The Network seeks to bring to the attention of European governments, universities, general practitioner associations and relevant bodies of the European Union, the issues of current and future concern in the field. Integration of the newly qualified family physician into health care systems today will demand the careful attention of the Network during 1996-1997

Family practice development strategies : report on the third WHO Meeting of the Expert Network, Istanbul, Turkey, 23-25 February 1997
WHO Meeting of the Expert Network on Family Pratice Development Strategies (3rd: 1997: Istanbul, Turkey); World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1997 )

The Expert Network on Family Practice Development Strategies was established to give its participants, who come from countries that are in the process of establishing or strengthening General Practice/Family Medicine (GP/FM), the opportunity to exchange experiences and learn from each other. Experts from 13 countries participated in the Third Meeting (Istanbul, 23-25 February 1997), where the integration of newly trained or retrained family physicians into the health care system was discussed. Among the obstacles to the successful integration of (re)trained physicians were the lack of proper incentives for retraining, the workload of practicing physicians and resistance by specialists. The attitudes of decision-makers, the financing mechanisms and the prevailing traditions were also mentioned. On the other hand, integration was facilitated by high standards of training and by clearly identified competencies of GP. The motivation of GPs and supportive policies related to professional status, job satisfaction and income were important. The methodology of Needs and Outcomes Assessment in Primary Health Care was considered as a means to strengthen the community orientation and the range of services provided by GP/FM
