Family Planning and Contraception in Egypt
Just how much do Egyptians care about family planning and safe sex? The 2015 Egypt Health Issues Survey has revealed the attitudes towards the use of contraceptives and family planning in Egypt.
According to the 2015 survey, which was performed on behalf of the Ministry of Health and Population and is part of the USAID-funded DHS program that is supported by UNICEF and UNFPA, very few men and women believe it is appropriate to use contraceptives before the first pregnancy.
The study found that while 90 percent of women and 87 percent of men between the ages of 15 and 49 considered it appropriate to start using family planning methods after the first birth, just eight percent of women and ten percent of men regarded such methods as appropriate before the first baby.
