“Ten years ago, we set off to make family planning a social norm in Nigeria,” says Susan Krenn, CCP’s executive director. “Not only have we achieved that hand-in-hand with our government partners, we celebrate the end of NURHI knowing that what we have started will continue on.”
“My Family Planning Guide” is a distance learning education mobile app designed by CCP in Nigeria to keep family planning service providers up-to-date on the newest types of modern contraception and strengthen interpersonal communication with clients.
Through a combination of strategies, CCP’s project boosted the number of women adopting modern contraception after giving birth in 40 private health facilities by more than seven-fold in one year. The strategies are now being scaled up to an additional 200 private clinics over the next year.
In late April, after eight years of advocacy work by CCP, the House Assembly of Oyo State passed a bill requiring the state to fund family planning there. CCP staff hope other states will soon follow Oyo’s lead.
The big question is this: How can we make the radical change necessary to save mothers and their babies in Northern Nigeria? CCP is taking a deep dive to look for answers.
