Too little for sex or effective family planning: Malawi’s fertility rate falls

12

In the face of increased population growth and early pregnancies, it is good news to understand that Malawi’s fertility rates have fallen.

According to the Malawi Demographic and Health Survey for 2015-16 which is still ongoing, there has been a drop in the fertility rate of women, apparently meaning that women are not giving birth to many children as were the case in the past.

HIV Test MalawiAs of 1992, on average a woman gave birth to 7 children. There was little change for the 8 years that lapsed as for 2012, a woman on average gave birth to 6 children.

In 2004, the figure still remained at 6 and it was almost the same in 2010 as it was reported that an average Malawian woman gave birth to 5.7 children.

There has, however, been a decrease in the current report as the average Malawian woman has a fertility rate of 4.4.

The result can be attributed to the efforts at family planning that have been advocated for strongly in recent years.
