The rapid spread of family planning in the last two decades has provided evidence from almost every country that birth-spacing can have a revolutionary impact on maternal and child health.
Studies in India, Turkey, the Philippines and Lebanon, for example, have shown that infant mortality rates for babies born within one year of a previous birth are between two and four times as high as for babies born after an interval of two years or more.
