Abstract

Este documento realiza una revisión teórica y empírica acerca de los determinantes principales que inciden en el uso de métodos de planificación familiar. Entre las variables analizadas se encuentran, el estado conyugal de la mujer, el nivel educativo, conocimiento y uso de los métodos de planificación familiar, planificación familiar de la población adolescente, entre otros. Dentro de la evidencia empírica se encuentra, que para Colombia el conocimiento de los métodos de anticoncepción es generalizado, existiendo un alto uso de métodos de planificación familiar por parte de las mujeres casadas o unidas, y de las sexualmente activas. De igual forma, en las adolescentes, se establece que aunque el uso de métodos de planificación ha aumentado en la última década, continua siendo bajo. Así mismo, se encuentra una relación positiva entre el nivel educativo de la mujer y su conocimiento sobre métodos anticonceptivos y demanda por servicios de salud. Adicionalmente para América Latina y el Caribe se observa que el uso de anticonceptivos ha aumentado considerablemente en las dos últimas décadas aunque de manera heterogénea por país.
