Need for debate

0n December 17 and 18, 1998, the Institute for Research in Reproduction in Mumbai held a workshop on improving contraceptive choices in the National Family Welfare Programme, looking specifically at inject able contraceptives.

 The two days of discussions were heated at many points, reflecting two very different perspectives. This was particularly true during the concluding session in which participants were to present the group’s recommendations on whether or not to include inject able contraceptives in the National Family Welfare Programme. 

We carry the views of two of the participants, in the hope that the debate reaches a larger audience. 

Readers are invited to send in their responses on what is clearly a question which needs extensive discussion.
