Coverage: Indonesia


As in much of the developing world, birth rates in Indonesia have been falling dramatically since the early 1970s. The fertility reductions are attributed mainly to increased contraceptive use, encouraged by Indonesia's innovative and vigorous national family planning program. The results of a new study can be used to guide program planning and ensure that populations with the greatest unmet need are supplied with appropriate types and levels of family planning services.
