Family Planning & Welfare
IDHC Society supports and promoting family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention from Society. Family planning allows individuals and couples to anticipate and attain their desired number of children and the spacing and timing of their births. It is achieved through use of contraceptive methods and the treatment of involuntary infertility. A woman’s ability to space and limit her pregnancies has a direct impact on her health and well-being as well as on the outcome of each pregnancy.

Inspite of being the smallest state in the country with an area of 1483 sq. km. Delhi stands tall with a population of 1, 67, 53,235(Census2011). Population density of Delhi is almost 11,300 per sq km as compared to All India population density of 340 only and is the highest in the country.

The population due to its dynamic nature as a result of opportunities of higher Job and health services availability in Delhi, imposes an additional important role for addressing the related needs of the target beneficiaries through its various services so that survival rates and quality of life of the most vulnerable improves over time. Hence there is a need to propagate ‘small family norm’ as a way of life among the eligible population. In this context, the role of the Directorate of Family Welfare is vital.
