Evaluation of Male Village Based Family Planning Workers Project

Category : Evaluation Studies   06 June, 2002

The focus of population policy has been on females for adoption of family planning since inception of the Programme. During Eighth Five Year Plan, it was realized that involvement of both males and females is essential for the success of the programme. In socio-cultural milieu of Pakistan, family planning is not in the hands of females alone. The Village Based Family Planning Workers' Scheme was introduced in Pakistan in 1992, in order to increase the coverage of Family Welfare Programme in rural areas and to improve its accessibility in Pakistan's villages. The scheme was expanded during Eighth Five Year Plan (1993-98) and it gradually built a foundation for the provision of family planning services in rural areas. Male Village Based Family Planning Workers (MVBFPWs) project was launched during Eighth Five Year Plan as a pilot project in few districts. It was planned to increase the number of MVBFPWs in a phased manner from 612 MVBFPWs in 1998-1999 to 7012 in 2002-03, but the number could only be increased up to 787 by the end of 2000-2002.
