Abstract:

The present study is a research synthesis on the effectiveness of family planning campaigns in developing countries. Using meta-analysis, the study examined 33 campaigns done by a prominent organization that has received substantial federal funding since 1987. On average, there were small, positive effects of the campaigns on knowledge of modern family planning methods (r = .20), spousal communication about family planning (r = .10), behavioral intentions (r = .08), and use of modern methods of family planning (r = .06). Exposure to the campaigns (averaging 71%) was higher than exposure to domestic campaigns (Snyder & Hamilton, 2002), and the average effect of self-reported campaign exposure on use was r = .14. The results should be interpreted tentatively, but can still be helpful to campaign planners and evaluators.
