Commitments

A commitment maker since 2012 and a member of both the Ouagadougou Partnership and SWEDD (Sahel Women’s Empowerment and Demographic Dividend project), Niger set itself the ambitious goal of reaching 50% mCPR by 2020. Data however shows that the goal may have been too ambitious and will most likely not be met, with an all-women mCPR estimate of 15.6% in 2018. They developed a nine-year Strategy, which needed to be reviewed in 2017, adjusting it to improve the slow momentum that exists in Niger, where the larger population still envisions very large families (10+ children) as a norm. Niger has put its focus on task shifting and a minimum service package for family planning through community based approach, broadening the method choice to its clients. The country looks to the private sector for financial support implementing its national health strategy, of which 15% will be allocated to youth-specific FP interventions. With the support of SWEDD, the country continues to invest in ‘husband-schools’ (les ecoles des maris), focusing on social behavior change strategies.
