Abstract


This paper is a result of experimental studies on family planning in Koyang county, a rural setting of Korea. The Koyang experience has shown that the acceptance of IUD is heavily dependent on two factors: the distance from the village to the IUD service clinic and the extent of side reactions: and unfavorable rumors about its use in the community. While the problem of distance was solved by sending out mobile teams or by establishing new clinics in the villages, the problem of side reaction and unfavorable rumors still remained.

This study was set up to see whether the organization of mothers’ classes could be a means to promote the acceptance and retention of IUDs. The mothers’ class was organized in each village (hamlet), and the membership was opened to every women in the village. It was hypothesized that the mothers, class with the proper educational materials will work as an adequate educational program to offset rumors and to make a favorable social climate for accepting and retaining the IUD. The field experiment was conducted according to the "before-after" design with a control group. It was found that the educational program in the mothers’ class was effective in promoting the acceptance and retention of contraceptive practice, particularly the IUD.
