Kenya, a developing Third World nation, has made a commitment to slow her population growth rate by actively promoting Maternal Child Health (MCH) and Family Planning (FP) programs. Present day programs are designed to promote the concept of smaller families, spacing of pregnancies, and reduce the rates of maternal and infant mortality. This paper explores the relationship between the status of women and the effectiveness of current MCWFP programs as linkages to the successful economic development of Kenya.
