From reviews of the previous edition: 'Provides a wealth of information . graphically illustrates the need for practitioners to be thoroughly knowledgeable.' Toni Belfield, Director of Information, Family Planning Association. The world's population is increasing dramatically. At levels over 7 billion, rising annually by over 83 million (with births outstripping deaths by a factor of c. 2.4) the toll this imbalance takes on the environment, developing economies and resources (healthcare, education, rates of poverty) and the lives of women in the poorer parts of the world is increasingly unsustainable. Even in the developed world there is still an unacceptably high rate of unplanned pregnancies, demonstrating that appropriate education at both local and global levels about the full range of available contraception is essential. Using a highly accessible question-and-answer format, John Guillebaud and Anne MacGregor seek to ensure everything needed for good family planning practice is here in this book. Now in its seventh edition and online via ExpertConsult, Contraception: Your Questions Answered remains the market-leading, one-stop resource for family planning professionals worldwide.
