|Abstract: ||The Concept of Planned Parenthood:-
Definition and Synonyms:-
A common misconception by the layman is to regard Planned Parenthood as a method of stopping to produce anymore children. In Public Health parlance, this has a dual connotation and has to do with:-
i. The spacing and timing of pregnancy and the control of ones fertility so that the desired number of children is got.
ii. This also includes the management of sub/infertility especially if such occurs before the attainment of the desired number of children, along with the related social and psychological problems. (Rosa 1971).
Hence the primary aim of Planned Parenthood is to have a child born to parents, who is well planned for, to enable healthy growth and development and at the same time with the mother maintaining a sound state of health, which ultimately means the production of a healthy community.|
