Abstract

Using data from the Notional Family Health Survey of 1992-93 and the individual reproductive histories of a cross-section of 70 women from rural Tamil Nadu, this paper exposes the limited extent to which women in India hove been able to achieve their reproductive intentions and the failure of health services to meet their considerable reproductive health needs. Of the 70 women, 69 had been unable to achieve their reproductive intentions, not only non-users of contraception but also ever-users, and all 69 hod on unmet need for reproductive health services. Sterilisation is often the first and only method of contraception taken up and only after a series of wonted, mistimed and unwonted pregnancies, miscarriages, induced abortions and neonatal and infant deaths. Women who wanted to have more children than they wereable to were also found. Given the paradigm policy shift in India from promoting fertility reduction only to meeting women's reproductive and sexual health needs, a more useful concept for measuring 'unmet need' for servicesin programme planning is required, one such cis the HARI index, that wouldcapture the extent to which individual women ore achieving their reproductive intentions in good health. Without this, the some problems will only recur in younger women.
