An experimental project in Cheju, an island province of South Korea, tested the use of village-level canvassers to contact and motivate couples to accept contraception for family planning. By the end of the project in 1980, fertility in rural Cheju, where the program was most successful, was lower than in the rest of rural South Korea.
