Nigeria - Program & Service Delivery

DateJuly 11, 2017

2017 Update: Read the commitment summary here

2014:Nigeria commits to train at least 3,700 community health workers (CHWs) to deliver the range of contraceptives, particularly long-acting and reversible methods (LARMs) and support task shifting so CHWs in rural areas can provide multiple methods.

Nigeria plans to focus on education, especially education of girls, and build on the impact of market interventions. The Nigerian Government will improve the supply of contraceptives in the country through stimulating the private sector; lowering the price of contraceptives through removal of import duties and other regulatory barriers; and strengthening the in-country logistics system that ensures commodity availability at the facility level. On the demand side, Nigeria will increase awareness and demand for family planning services.

Finally, Nigeria will use social marketing to mitigate socio-cultural barriers such as preference for large families, religious restrictions, and women's lack of decision-making power.
