International Trials and Tribulations
Family planning is a relatively new area of health care all over the world. Its newness and complexity have given rise to many questions, some of which require research, for instance on birth control technology, on motivation and psychosocial factors, and on service delivery. The Member States of the World Health Organization requested the setting up, in 1972, of a ‘Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction’ to address itself to these questions. It is essentially a collaborative programme, directed primarily to the needs of developing countries, and involving scientists from over 70 countries both developed and developing (World Health Organization, 1979).
