FAMILY

PLANNING
FAMILY PLANNING
• is the practice of controlling the number of children in a
family and the intervals between their births, particularly by
means of artificial contraception or voluntary sterilization
• may involve consideration of the number of children a
woman wishes to have, including the choice to have no
children, as well as the age at which she wishes to have
them.
• Family planning services are defined as "educational,
comprehensive medical or social activities which enable
individuals, including minors, to determine freely the number
and spacing of their children and to select the means by
which this may be achieved
A. CONCEPT OF FAMILY PLANNING
• 1) the system of relationships among groups of
individuals with differing roles and expectations;
• 2) values toward family size and parenthood;
• 3) the concept of parenthood as a career. Successful
family planning is often a result of perceiving the
goal of planning as either termination of further
childbearing or spacing of births; and
• 4) psychosocial and economic aspects of
contraception..
B. GOALS OF FAMILY PLANNING
• 1. End hunger and Poverty
• 2. Increase Education
• 3. Empower Women
• 4. Improve Infant Health
• 5. Improve Maternal Health
• 6. Decrease HIV / AIDS
• 7. Save the environment
• 8. Support Partnerships
C. PRINCIPLES OF FAMILY PLANNING
• Responsible Parenthood. which means that each family has
the right and duty to determine the desired number of
children they might have and when they might have them.
And beyond responsible parenthood is Responsible Parenting
which is the proper bringing and education of children so
that they grow up to be upright, productive and civic-
minded citizens.
• Respect for Life. The 1987 Constitution states that the
government protects the sanctity of life. Abortion is NOT a
FP method.
• Birth Spacing refers to interval between pregnancies
(which is ideally 3 years). It enables women to recover
their health improves women's potential to be more
productive and to realize their personal aspirations
and allows more time to care for children and
spouse/husband, and;
• Informed Choice that is upholding and ensuring the
rights of couples to determining the number and
spacing of their children according to their life's
aspirations and reminding couples that planning size
of their families have a direct bearing on the quality
of their children's and their own lives.
D. INTERRELATIONSHIPS
• A leveling off of family planning programs in Asia has indicated the
need to improve family planning acceptance by identifying other
health measures with which it can be integrated to increase family
planning acceptance. In this regard parasite control and nutrition
promotion were considered the most appropriate health programs in
view of the interrelationship which has been shown to exist between
family planning, nutrition, and parasite control.
• The most effective approach to the problem must necessarily be
involved with this triad of interdependent health problems.
• Promotion of nutrition and parasite control, through reduction in
infant mortality will lead to a decreased demand for children and
hence the acceptance of family planning in areas of high population
growth and high childhood mortality.
F. METHODS OF CONTRACEPTION

• Contraception (birth control) prevents pregnancy by


interfering with the normal process of ovulation,
fertilization, and implantation. There are different
kinds of birth control that act at different points in the
process.
