Bangladesh: Population Control Versus Health
Lancet. 1984 Jun 30; 1(8392): 1458-1459.
A report from Bangladesh discusses problems related to that country's population policies. The rate of population growth continues to exceed targeted goals, despite strong support for contraception programs by the government and organizations such as the United States Agency for International Development. Some foreign donors have raised questions about the current campaign to encourage sterilizations among the rural poor by offering incentives of goods, money, and food. Another area of major concern is the allocation of available funds to population control to the detriment of other health needs, particularly maternal and child health. (KIE abstract)
