Note: FP2020 uses a rolling baselines so values are recalculated each year based on the newset available data.
A Nigerian woman gives birth to an average of 5.5 children in her lifetime. A commitment maker since 2012, the Government of Nigeria works with key stakeholders to address socio-cultural norms such as: preference for large families, religious tenets, and women's lack of decision-making power related to sexual and reproductive health. On course to devolve the financing of its national family planning program to state level, improve availability of and access to services and commodities, and slow the rate of its population growth, Nigeria is on the path to a healthier future for women and families. The focus is on dispelling myths and misconceptions about family planning, expanding the provision of FP services and supplies to the last mile, and enabling an environment in which women and girls make informed choices on their health.
Nigeria FP2020 Commitment
Nigeria commits to achieving the goal of a contraceptive prevalence rate of 36% by 2018. This will enhance maternal and child survival, thereby contributing to the government of Nigeria’s initiative to save one million lives by 2015. In addition to Nigeria’s current annual commitment of US $3 million for the procurement of reproductive health commodities, Nigeria commits to provide an additional US $8.35 million annually over the next four years. This increases Nigeria’s total commitment for the next four years from US $12 million to US $45.4 million, an increase of almost 300%. The federal government will work with the state and local governments to secure complementary budgets for family planning and reproductive health service delivery. Nigeria’s commitments include training frontline health workers to deliver a range of contraceptives and action to improve equity and access to family planning for the poorest. The government of Nigeria will partner with the private sector, civil society, traditional and religious institutions and development partners.
Nigeria Family Planning Blueprint (Scale-Up Plan) 2014-2020
Following Nigeria’s commitments made at the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning, the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) developed the Nigeria Family Planning Blueprint (Scale-Up Plan). The FMOH has incorporated existing plans with additional strategic planning and consultation to draft the comprehensive, five-year costed scale-up plan. The Blueprint is intended to guide programming, resource allocation, and commitments to achieve the national objective of a contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR) of 36 percent by 2018.

Estimates for the Core Indicators are produced annually by commitment countries through a network of country-based Track20 M&E officers housed in government institutions.
