History of Family Planning in Twentieth-Century Peru

This chapter discusses the Population Policy Guideline, a document which defined the standards for national policy. The Peruvian guideline set the national qualitative goals for strengthening families, encouraging equal rights between men and women, ensuring responsible parenthood, and achieving national security and economic development. It also highlighted the main problems related to rapid population growth such as urban chaos and unemployment. However, the guideline’s implementation was a disappointment from a policy standpoint. Jesuit Juan Julio Wicht, the guideline’s main architect, complained that almost nothing had been done to address the complex problems identified in the guideline. By 1996, improvements in the provision of family planning services had occurred, but only slowly and unevenly.

Keywords:   Population Policy Guideline, rapid population growth, Peruvian Guideline, responsible parenthood, Juan Julio Wicht, family planning, urban chaos
