- RECOGNIZES the importance of concerted efforts by the Health Ministry or Department and all other Ministries or Departments, Government and other private agencies concerned, in countries undertaking family planning programmes, if programmes are to be successful;
- NOTES the difficulties which have arisen in view of the fact that research in family planning has been very inadequate to date and that WHO is in the process of launching an extensive research programme;
