After five years of national programmatic use of Norplant® contraceptive implants, in 1992 the National Population and Family Planning Board (BKKBN) plans to implement a follow-up Use-Dynamics Study of implant users in West Java and West Sumatra Provinces, Indonesia. A Diagnostic Study was implemented in 1991 to prepare for that study prior to final approval, and to get some early insights into implant program operations in advance of final results from the main study. This report is a summary of findings from the Diagnostic Study. The Diagnostic Study had two broad objectives: to obtain information to guide development of the larger Use-Dynamics Study, and to supplement existing information on implant service delivery with a field-based observation study to help BKKBN make necessary decisions for its implant program. The Diagnostic Study helped in sharpening the original questionnaire draft, which has been appropriately revised.
