The population explosion in Asia has reached crisis proportions. Fortunately many of the countries in Asia, as well as the developed countries in the West, recognize the severity of the crisis and are actively supporting Family Planning Programs to bring contraception education and supplies to the populace. The Programs are still in their infancy, but some of them (Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Pakistan) have made great strides. Experts differ in their long-range predictions for the success of the movement, but all feel that it is essential to the future of mankind. Because of the early success in several countries, and the expectation of new simple and inexpensive methods of contraception, there is reason for guarded optimism.
