Title:Family planning or birthcontrol: the Ghanaian contradiction
Author:Bleek, WolfISNI
Periodical:Cultures et développement
Geographic term:Ghana
Subject:family planning
Abstract:This paper studies 'family planning' at two different levels: 1) the presentation of family planning by Ghanaian policy makers and 2) the perceptions and actions of rural Ghanaians as related to the prevention of birth. The author hopes to demonstrate that the term 'family planning' does not fit the birth limiting practices which are carried on by members of a rural community, and that the type of propaganda which is used to advertise family planning is unrealistic and fails to recognize some basic facts of conjugal life in rural Ghana. Sections: Introduction - The idea of 'family' - The idea of 'family planning' - Family planning or birthcontrol. Ref., tables.
