  • M Palamuleni

Abstract



A comparison of four nationally representative household surveys of Malawian women of reproductive ages indicates a substantial increase in contraceptive prevalence during the twenty-year period 1984 to 2004 (see figure 1). Contraceptive Prevalence Rate (CPR) in Malawi has increased from less than one percent in 1984 to 7%, 12%, 21% and 22% in 1992, 1996, 2000 and 2004, respectively
