dc.description.abstract A randomized field trial involving two modes of contracepti ve distribution, clinical and communi ty-based, which were again divided into "free" and "paying" subgroups was carried out in four rural service cooperatives (S . C.) ( consisting of 4-6 Farmers Associations) of Sululta, Oromia Region, from Oct/92 - Feb/93. The baseline survey revealed no important differences in potential confounders among the selected 8 Farmers Associations (FA) ( 2 FAs from each S.C.). Of the total 110 clients, 75 (68.2%) were females while 35(31.8%) were males. After 17 weeks of program intervention the contraceptive prevalence rate was 5.8% at Community Based Distribution (CBD) , while 2.6% at clinics. There was a significant difference (p= . 043) between paying and free groups in continuation rates. The main reasons for not starting oral pills was lack of knowledge while those in favour of starting were to prevent pregnancy, already having enough children and the need for birth spacing. The majority (80.0%) of male clients started taking condoms to prevent STDs and AIDs. The high attendance rate of women at CBD sites may be due to easier access i bility and may CBD programs to reach a large majority of the rural population. The increasing trend of continuation, which may be due to value given to paid items, might also help broaden the acceptance of family planning services. en_US
