From Nehru to Indira to Rajiv to Sonia, A file image of a sex worker blowing a condom during an AIDS awareness campaign in Kolkata. the pull-out method).With the exception of condoms none of the methods above provide protection from sexually transmitted disease And “traditional” methods don’t necessarily always have a high rate of failure or mean that those relying on them are uneducated or ignorant (For an exploration of the fascinating complexities behind this read Alaka Malwade Basu’s 2001 paper on the use of “traditional” methods among upper-class women) Data on contraception across states varies rather widely Although the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare cautions us that the figures from this latest survey may not strictly be comparable to previous rounds of NFHS due to differences in sample size the latest data tells us some interesting stuff about contraceptive use While 50 percent of women in Karnataka – a state with high HIV prevalence – were aware that consistent use of condoms would reduce the chance of HIV/AIDS only 13 percent were reported using the contraceptive method The most widely used method by far (to which condoms came in second) was female sterilisation at 486 percent Overall across rural and urban areas 513 percent of women reported using any modern method of contraception A decade ago this figure stood at 625 percent In Goa where 372 percent of women used modern methods a decade ago only 248 percent do now (female sterilisation accounts for 163 percent of this) — the sharpest decline of all states In Manipur condom use fell drastically from 41 percent a decade ago to 13 percent In six of the 14 states surveyed the use of IUDs hasrisen Clearly not all of this data corresponds with what we might anticipate Tamil Nadu has a high rate of contraceptive use but where 60 percent of women used “modern” methods in 2005-2006 this figure has now dipped to 526 percent NB Sarojini founder and director of theSamaResource Group for Women and Health involved in issues of women’s health and rights says "In Tamil Nadu female sterilisation rate is very high education levels and health facilities are also better So one would think that Tamil Nadu may be doing much better but such is not the case and that is very surprising" An expert points out that the drop in contraception use should also be weighed against whether the number of abortions has increased Reuters Total fertility rate hasdeclined too "One good thing" says B Paswan “is that although family planning has gone down TFR [Total Fertility Rate: the number of children born per woman of child-bearing age] has not increased It has gone down too” Paswan is a professor and head of the department of Population Policies and Programmes at the International Institute for Population Sciences – the designated nodal agency responsible for providing coordination and technical guidance for the survey Interestingly data on the states that were surveyed under the NFHS-3 as well show that the TFR dropped in all 14 of them Goa has the lowest TFR with 17 percent down from 18 percent while Bihar has the highest with 34 percent down from 4 percent in 2005-2006 Paswan thinks one reason for lower contraceptive use might be because people are getting married late The median age of marriage among Indians according to WHO and Ministryof Health and Family Welfare in India –2011 report is 222 years for men and 26 years for women as compared to 202 years for men and 248 years for women in 2001 By his reasoning the need for contraceptive use starts later among individuals Only married women surveyed on contraceptive use Sarojini points out that the NFHS does not take into account statistics on unmarried women If late marriage is one of the contributing factors to this decline it raises questions: Anyone who marries late abstains from sex until then If we take the ‘sanskaari’ route and assume that we don’t need to collect data on pre-marital sex will we ever get a clear picture ofcontraceptive use in India The rate of female sterilisation has thankfully dropped DrSreeparna Chattopadhyay Assistant Professor at the School of Development Azim Premji University says that NFHS-4 data shows a decline in the practice of female sterilisation as contraception She sees this as a good thingand says it needs to be cross-referred with women’s age at marriage for a clearer picture of whether other kinds of contraception have taken its place such as "traditional" methods Chattopadhyay also points out that the drop in contraception use should also be weighed against whether the number of abortions has increased Sarojini further says that it is important to note that the use of contraceptives and family planning always falls on the woman’s shoulders men are never equal participants in it She says "Either thewomen who need family planning methods are not accessing the services or the services are not being available to them with the methods they want We need to take a serious look at the service provisioning and address critical gaps in the quality and reach of these services" The Ladies Finger(TLF) is
