Abstract


After harvesting the data field and their statistical analysis, it appears that the level of education for women, religious practice and the approval of the husband on contraceptive use are socio cultural determinants of access to family planning services. Protestant’s women have a contraceptive practice twice higher than that of Catholics. However of all these factors, the level of women's studies has proven to be the most predominant factor. It was identified that 47% of couples engaged in discussions on family planning in 60% of cases on the initiative of women. Assortative couples high school or university had more access to family planning services as assortative couples from primary or uneducated. The women of low education who primarily live in the outskirts of the city do not have access to family planning services because of the absence of the latter. To have a good access to these services, it is recommended that religious leaders and promoters of the education of girls to increase awareness in the community and take man as main target.

Abstract: (french)


Après la récolte des données sur terrain et leur traitement statistique, il ressort que le niveau d’étude pour la femme, sa pratique religieuse et l’approbation du mari sur l’usage du contraceptif sont des facteurs socio culturels déterminants l’accès aux services de planification familiale. Les lushoises protestantes ont une pratique contraceptive deux fois plus élevée que celle des catholiques. Cependant de tous ces facteurs, le niveau d’études de la femme s’est avéré être le facteur le plus prédominant. On a identifié que 47% de couples ont engagé des discussions sur la planification familiale dans 60% de cas sur initiative de la femme. Les couples homogames du niveau secondaire ou universitaire ont eu plus accès aux services de planification familiale que des couples homogames du niveau primaire ou non instruits. Les femmes de faible niveau d’instruction qui habitent essentiellement la périphérie de la ville n’ont pas accès aux services de planification familiale à cause de l’absence de ces derniers. Pour avoir un bon accès à ces services, il est recommandé aux responsables religieux et aux promoteurs de l’éducation des filles d’accroitre la conscientisation de la communauté et de prendre l’homme comme cible principale.

Author Keywords: Services de planification familiale, déterminants socio-culturels, accessibilité, classification hiérarchique, distribution spatiale.
