      In addition to these factors associated with contraceptive use, the strength of family planning programs is central to the prospects for fertility decline. Evidence reviewed in Chapter 5 demonstrates that family planning pro- grams in Botswana, Kenya, and Zimbabwe are the most well developed in Sub-Saharan Africa. Zimbabwe is one of the countries with the highest contraceptive use rates in sub-Saharan Africa, and M.T. Mbizvo et al. the total fertility rate has declined by 22% from an estimated in to in (Government of Zimbabwe, ).Cited by:

They gave me other pills.

This study uses Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) data from five countries (Kenya, Lesotho. However, research on contraceptive Contraceptive use dynamics in Zimbabwe book, especially in tribal communities in Zimbabwe, point out that the practice is not only a human rights violation but has devastating effects on the community.

It denies the young women the opportunity to build families and bear as many children as their mothers did. Zimbabwe has invested massively in public infrastructure since independence in The impact of these investments on demographic outcomes is examined using household survey data matched with two community level surveys.

Still, the fertility rate in Zimbabwe remains high, and critics have charged that the family planning program is ineffective—even though there has been no systematic evaluation of the by: 1.

CONTRACEPTION /v Acknowledgements The World Health Organization (WHO) would like to thank the author of this paper, Dr R. Rivera of Family Health International, North Carolina, United States of America. The edition of the Handbook includes new WHO recommendations that expand contraceptive choices.

For example, WHO now recommends that breastfeeding women can start progestogen-only pills or contraceptive implants any time after childbirth. More contraceptive options are now included: ulipristal.

A total of 1, females responded to the survey; median (IQR) age was 21(20, 21) years, % in year 2 of study, and nearly three quarters ( %) were of Christian faith.

Insight into contraceptive switching and. Addressing Women’s Contraceptive Needs in Zimbabwe. In order to prevent unintended pregnancies, it is important for reproductive health programs in Zimbabwe to address the contraceptive needs of all women—those who use contraceptives, those who do not use any contraceptive method, and those who have discontinued using contraception.

contraception, a novelty in most developing countries in the s, has become a norm in much of the world. Yet, one in 10 women globally continues to report an unmet need for family planning. Also, less is known about the dynamics of contraceptive use following the initiation of use than for contraceptive prevalence and differentials.

Contraceptive-use dynamics encompasses a wide range of contraceptive-use issues and varies across and within countries. To inform targeted interventions, the factors that influence method choice and use dynamics over the life course need to be examined.
