KNOWLEDGE OF POPULATION PLANNING AND BIRTH CONTROL IN MEDICAL STUDENTS
This research is an effort to describe medical students’ knowledge about population demographics, population planning and their possible relationship. Future doctors will be required to recommend birth control and support measures of population planning in Pakistan. It is believed that a poor knowledge of population demographics is a factor in finding birth control and population planning less useful and acceptable. How birth control and population planning are perceived by these young doctors is important. In this study, medical students’ views about birth control, population planning and sex selection are correlated with their knowledge about population demographics. The study showed a weak correlation indicating even medical students have poor knowledge about this topic.
