A report on assistance to develop a national maternal and child health and family planning program in Rwanda

AID Research and Development Abstracts 10(1/2): p.62
A report on assistance to develop a national maternal and child health and family planning program in Rwanda
In 1981 the Government of Rwanda formed a National Office of Population (ONAPO) and commissioned this study to assess the current state of maternal/child health (MCH) and family planning (FP) programmes. The report first provides basic demographic data (health statistics, censuses, population dynamics, etc.) and suggests areas for further population research. Next, ONAPO's present policy -- to encourage birth spacing to protect MCH -- is discussed.
