Abstract

This paper recommends appropriate steps for designing effective information, education and communication (IEC) programs. It also considers the following program issues for donor agencies in the 1990s: building institutional capacity and getting immediate results; building in-country technical skills through technical assistance and the use of intermediary organizations; linking IEC and family planning services; using private-sector expertise; handling opposition and controversy; and supporting IEC at a realistic level. The paper provides detailed recommendations on these issues based upon lessons learnt and the authors' experiences. -from Authors
