ABSTRACT
This article discusses the National Program of Family Planning and Primary Health Care and how lady health workers provide doorstep delivery of services to women in rural Pakistan. Married women using such a program are more likely than other married women to use a modern reversible contraceptive. The impact of this program on the adoption of modern reversible contraceptive methods is evaluated. A survey was conducted between October 2000 and April 2001 on the use of modern contraceptive methods by married women living in rural areas. Characteristics positively associated with women's current use of such contraceptives included being educated, having at least two living children and wanting no more children, watching television frequently and living in a house with floors made of cement or tiles.
