Abstract

Husband's approval of contraceptive use plays a decisive role in Indonesia. Using data from the first Indonesia Contraceptive Prevalence Survey for metropolitan cities, husband's approval and other determinants of contraceptive use among fecund women were evaluated. For all cities husband's approval was the most important determinant, followed by number of living children and wife's education. Because most of the family planning programs in Indonesia are designed to serve primarily women, the finding of husband's approval as the most important determinant has important program implications -from Authors
