Contraceptive Sterilization

Praise from the Experts

Experts have widely praised the fact book Contraceptive Sterilization: Global Issues and Trends. Some examples are printed below.

"A timely update on the most widely used method of contraception in the world today; the most comprehensive data collection on contraceptive sterilization, carefully validated and analysed; and a fresh look at contraceptive sterilization within a broad 'EngenderHealth' approach."
—Professor Mahmoud F. Fathalla, M.D., Assiut University, Egypt

"While sterilization remains the most widely used method of contraception the world over, the service delivery and policy contexts that surround the method and its use have changed dramatically since 1985. This new volume does a remarkably fine job of collecting and analyzing the new data. It will surely prove to be a vital resource for anyone interested in the subject."
—John Ross, Senior Fellow at The Futures Group International and co-author of Voluntary Sterilization: An International Fact Book (1985)

"This is a valuable and comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art for male and female sterilization."
—Herbert B. Peterson, M.D., Department of Reproductive Health and Research, World Health Organization

"This fact book provides a wealth of information on the most widely used contraceptive method in the world. It spans issues from surgical methods to programmatic innovations to psychosocial barriers. Program managers, academic researchers, policy makers, and students of human behavior will find answers to the questions and issues defining this field today"
—Jane T. Bertrand, Ph.D., M.B.A., Professor and Director, Center for Communication Programs, Johns Hopkins University

"Contraceptive Sterilization: Global Issues and Trends provides a superb overview relevant to the provision of sterilization, the most highly effective method of birth control. It is an important and up-to-date reference on the status of sterilization, which continues to be the most widely used method of contraception in the world"
—Louise B. Tyrer, M.D., Medical Director, Association of Reproductive Health Professionals
