The objective of the ethnographic research was to look at the spread of influence and family planning information through social networks in order to evaluate the role of social networks in facilitating or hindering family planning acquisition and use. The results of the ethnographic research also served to guide the development of data collection tools that were appropriate in the Malian context for the social network mapping, the second part of the formative research.
