With the release of information from the 1993 National Demographic Survey (NDS) and the 1993 Safe Motherhood Survey (SMS), researchers in the Philippines can now develop extensive profiles of the frequency, duration, and quality of contact between reproductive health clients and service providers, as well as the characteristics of eligible women who are not currently using reproductive health services. Analysis of NDS and SMS results points to several recommendations for improving health care during pregnancy and childbirth, strengthening postpartum family planning services, extending the range of reproductive health services, and balancing the roles of the public and private sectors.
