While contraceptive use has risen impressively in many countries over the past two to three decades, there have been occasional periods of stalling, raising serious concerns about the effectiveness of national family planning programmes. The stalls have been caused by, among others, a narrow choice of family planning methods, lack of focus or other weaknesses in reproductive health programmes, and difficulty in coping with the rapid increases in the population of reproductive age. This document presents eight article summaries with further analysis of the 2003 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey.
