To understand the knowledge, attitudes and practices of women of reproductive age who use family planning services, those who are these services are provided, and also to determine the quality of contraceptive assistance to the population of medical institutions, conducted socio­logical research on the quality use of contraceptives by women of reproductive age. A specially designed questionnaire survey was conducted among 200 specialists of medical institutions for a professional assessment of knowledge, attitude and practice professionals providing contra­ceptive services in the Republic. There was set low level of awareness of modern methods of contraception, the confidentiality of provision of contraceptive services and principles of coun­seling, post-Natal and postabortal contraception and voluntary surgical sterilization, methods of emergency contraception, indications and rules of their use, on the principles of counseling condom use. Specialists have an insufficient level of knowledge on the indication, duration of use and unwanted effects with the use of oral contraceptives and Depo-Provera.
