Women made familiar with family planning methods

Dehradun, March 20
To outreach women in the comfortable space of their communities for family planning counselling, a day-long seminar on promoting injectable contraceptives, Dimpa, was organised by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) here today.
A large gathering of married women from various walks of life attended the seminar with keen interest. They shared their experiences and concerns on various issues related to family planning methods. The seminar advised women on family planning methods.
Addressing the event, Sanjeev Vyas, programme director, Dimpa, said: “Studies have shown that the use of effective spacing methods by married women is very low in India. The reason behind it is barriers such as embarrassment, peer family pressure and low level of knowledge.”
“We, through such seminars, aim at helping women overcome these barriers and provide them comprehensive information on various family planning methods so that they can choose the method best suited to their needs,” he added.
