I. FAMILY PLANNING

Of the surveyed mothers, 78% (362) stated that they did not desire or were not sure if they wanted any more children in the next two years. See Fig. J. for graphic description from baseline to final.

The rate of usage of a modern type of contraception, was recorded as 78%.   These rates of contraception usage have increased from the baseline rate of only 62%, and midterm rate of 58%.  Moreover,  only (9%) of women  were pregnant at the time of the survey.  This is a drop from the baseline of 14%. See Table 5  below for the most used contraceptive methods.
