Men in Rubavu district are urged to support wives in embracing family planning following the failure to increase family planning coverage from 48 percent to 60 percent as pledged in the districts performance contract.
This was revealed by Dr. Major William Kanyankore, Director of Gisenyi hospital during an interview on April 24th 2014.
“Women embrace family planning programme but some husbands frustrate them. We urge men to support wives for the betterment of the families,” said Kanyankore.
Family planning services were put in all health centres, private hospitals and Gisenyi hospital for residents to access them easily, He added.
Family planning is the practice of controlling the number of children one has and the intervals between their births, particularly by means of contraception or voluntary sterilization.
