Abstract

Situation analyses conducted in Nigeria, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe have revealed problems in the functioning of many of the subsystems of family planning service delivery, namely in supplies of commodities; in facilities and equipment; in staffing and training; in information, education, and communication; and in record keeping. Although a clear pattern of clinic use exists, in that only a few service-delivery points provide contraceptive services to the majority of new family planning acceptors in the three countries, an attempt to explain how clinics with more clients differ from those that are visited less frequently revealed only a weak association between subsystem functioning and use.
