India was the first country to undertake family planning as an official policy. It was also the first to develop an organized family planning communication process. The Ford Foundation led the field of family planning communication from the very beginning, and because the Foundation was already involved with India's family planning program, it was natural for its officers to expand their work into communications as well.
