Abstract

The broadening of access for equipment and service availability is the key in increasing the scope of family planning and reproductory health. Through the estimation of fit mix model of contraception will help the supply of contraception to meet the society’s needs. This study aims to estimate a fit model for contraception mix for the five provinces in Java Island. The data used were SDKI (IDHS) data in 2003, 2007, and 2012. The method used to formulate the fit contraception model was calculating the number of fertile women according to the phases of reproduction and number of children. Then, the formulation of appropriate method was conducted following the contraception guidance from Pendewasaan Usia Perkawinan (PUP), a program aiming to raise the age of marriage. The results of the study show that on average, the main needs for contraception in the society are the surgery method for females and the contraception method for males. This finding differs significantly from the common practice of contraception mix that generally is skewed towards the injection method. To provide contraception that not only fits the stages and the public’s needs but also broaden the society’s knowledge, it is expected that the society use appropriate contraception as this will increase the success rate of the decline in fertility and the increase of reproductory health.
