People first need to experience some improvement in the quality of their lives, ideally through their own efforts, and then see for themselves the potential for more improvement if they have smaller families. This conclusion obviously implies that widespread, voluntary fertility reduction is difficult to achieve. The experience of most family planning programs supports this conclusion. Beyond supplying basic services, one of the primary tasks of family planning programs should be to provide the support and opportunity for such a chain reaction of changes to take place more easily. The Mothers' Club Program has made a significant contribution in this respect to the family planning program of the Republic of Korea.
