This report outlines results of a study on factory-based family planning operations. The 18-month study compared the relative effectiveness of two interventions: 1) ongoing contraceptive distribution by a trained factory employee supported by monthly education visits by the Barbados Family Planning Association (BFPA); and 2) monthly service and education visits by the BFPA. Service and survey data indicated that the education/information program component was stronger than the contraceptive delivery component. There were remarkable increases in the employees' knowledge of contraceptive methods, especially in factories with employee distributors.
