Abstract:This paper reviews the aims and purposes of communication training, tracing the evolution of training in family planning communications from the early stages of national program developments to the present. The author discusses training needs and the clientele of training programs including those involved in face-to-face communications, personnel responsible for integrating interpersonal and mass communications, mass media personnel, and specialists in the production of communications materials. Other topics covered include training for integrated family planning and development programs, national and regional training centers, university based/academic programs, the training of trainers, and training facilities. Examples of successful as well as nonsuccessful training programs are used to illustrate the many different aspects of population/family planning communications training. The author concludes with an assessment of recent developments and future prospects in the field.
