Abstract

This report presents the results of a study of the family planning service-delivery practices of private physicians in Jamaica. All 367 private physicians in Jamaica who offer family planning services, counseling, or referral were included in the survey. The study revealed that a client seeking services might be given a method by one provider and not by another, and that the methods clients use are likely to be influenced by the providers' preferences. Private physicians in Jamaica are in need of access to current international guidance on contraceptive methods and service practices.
