“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.
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.
“Social media is such a powerful tool to use to reach young people,” says CCP's Aisha Waziri.
Women in Nigeria whose clerics extol the benefits of family planning were significantly more likely to adopt modern contraceptive methods, new research suggests, highlighting the importance of engaging religious leaders to help increase the country’s stubbornly low uptake of family planning services.
After each clinic makeover, the use of modern family planning services there increased significantly. Renovating the environment makes it more appealing, cleaner and motivates clients to seek care at the facility.
