The effects of husband and wife education on family planning in rural Turkey.


The effect of two family planning educational approaches--husband-wife and wife-only--on contraceptive knowledge, attitudes, and practice in the Etimesgut Health District are evaluated. Data collected for education and control groups show that husband-wife education was more effective than wife-only education and that wife-only education was more effective than the education received by the control group. Data collected from husbands and wives show that education had a positive effect on changing attitudes toward family planning. Most clear cut are findings that participation of men in the educational programs increased recruitment to the family planning program and decreased contraceptive discontinuation.
