PLANNING

TARAWA, Kiribati (May 27, 1999 - PACNEWS)---Dr. Taoruru Tebwana, working with the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), has revealed that clinic nurses in Kiribati are misinforming people on about family planning issues.

Dr. Taoruru said family planning doesn’t mean that every couple should have only one, two or three children and says couples should have the freedom to decide when and how many children to have.

Dr. Taoruru was addressing a United Nations-funded reproductive health workshop.

"Family planning depends on the couple’s decision, not someone else telling them what to do," she said.
