dc.description.abstract Family planning services in South Africa are now provided by the provincial and local authorities through clinics, hospitals, day hospitals, and mobile clinics. Both service providers and recipients have identified a range of problems with the current family planning service delivery system. Community-based distribution of contraceptives (CBD) has become a generally accepted alternative to clinic-based programmes for the distribution of contraceptives in many developing countries. The piloting of community-based distribution of contraceptives project in Khayelitsha, Cape Town / South Africa, is being undertaken by The Planned Parenthood Association of South Africa (a non-governmental organization), in collaboration with two other NGOs who run preventive and promotive health projects, SACLA and Zibonele. The objective of this study was to perform a cost analysis of alternative methods for providing effective contraceptive services. Clinic-based services for contraceptives, day hospital-based contraceptive services, and community-based distribution (CBD) of contraceptives programmes were evaluated. The following items were costed: salaries, contraceptives, buildings, equipment, vehicle, transport, repairs & maintenance, utilities, initial training, short-in-service training, and consultancy. en_ZA
