Contraceptive Sterilization

As we advance into the 21st century, voluntary sterilization continues to be the most prevalent form of contraception worldwide. Reliance on both male and female sterilization has grown substantially since 1980 and is expected to continue to rise in certain countries. The continuing demand for sterilization, its convenience, its minimal side effects, and its long-term contraceptive protection all guarantee that quality sterilization services remain a crucial component of comprehensive family planning services. Contraceptive Sterilization: Global Issues and Trends depicts the current state of contraceptive sterilization. It is the most comprehensive current source of information about the worldwide practice of contraceptive sterilization since the 1985 landmark publication Voluntary Sterilization: An International Fact Book. This new resource, Contraceptive Sterilization, provides the latest in-depth information about female and male sterilization, quality service delivery, sterilization incidence and prevalence, characteristics of sterilization users, laws and policies around the world, key factors influencing the use and outcomes of sterilization, research gaps, and future trends and needs.

The book has received praise from experts in the field. Read the executive summary and key highlights, or download individual chapters via the links below.
