Abstract:This paper is a review of technical and economic assistance in the field of population and family planning communication. It traces the development of population-related assistance programs and describes the kinds of assistance available from the major donor agencies and technical assistance institutions for population and family planning communication. It discusses problems and issues of technical and economic assistance such as the impact of external funding on national goals and policies; the relationships between outside experts and national personnel; the cultural variations that support or hinder programs of technical assistance; and coordination among donors, action agencies, and national governments. The author assesses the impact of economic and technical assistance programs on national family planning programs and identifies trends and probable future developments in the assistance field.
