History of Family Planning in Twentieth-Century Peru

This chapter discusses how family planning influenced government policies striving for socioeconomic development and improved health for women and children. It examines how world organizations such as the United Nations and the World Health Organization cooperated with local institutions in conducting studies and seminars to promote population control. It also considers the interactions between Peruvian, Latin American, and American ideas, which led to the consideration of family planning as an aspect of national policy. In general, Latin American governments viewed population policy as an intersectorial means to control migration, enhance education and health, and increase employment and economic productivity.
