There is concern over persons who fail to attend family planning clinics without a motivated reason. This represnts one of the major stumbling blocks to a successful family planning program. The author investigated factors associated with clinic drop-out among coloured women in a metropolitan area. Almost half of those who ceased to attend had a good reason for doing so. The main findings regarding the other defaulters was that there is a lack of motivation among Coloured women to prevent unplanned pregnancies through temporary contraception and that (he program may not meet all the needs of the public. In this regard specific reference is made to the need of those women who no longer bring their youngest child to a child health clinic as family planning services are usually integrated with this clinic.
