UWI Port of Spain Conference

by Bongs Lainjo

At this conference, participants were given a “take-home-quiz”.  During the RAPSYS presentation, it was demonstrated by the presenter that while the CPR for Sri Lanka and Bangladesh were about the same  (both upper 40 %), the TFR for Sri Lanka was significantly lower (1.9 versus 3.0). The question: What dynamics in the Sri Lanka program led to the below replacement rate while Bangladesh remained at three?

Responses can be posted on the discussion page below. And details of the presentation are available on the following link:
