In line with the national objective of improving the quality of life, a comprehensive family development program has been devel­ oped and is now being implemented. It emphasizes the improvement of family health and welfare through family-life education, parent­ ing courses, and marriage and family counseling. The stress is now on improving infrastructure in underserved and remote areas, on enhancing coverage and quality of care in designated areas of low coverage, and on program consolidation. The implementation of the risk approach in M CH/FP care has for its ultimate objective the availability and accessibility of a range of services, including FP, to all women and families for their better health and well-being.
