Niger - Program & Service Delivery

DateJune 11, 2012

Niger will work to include injectable contraceptives in methods provided by community health workers (CHWs). They will focus on new strategies to reach marginalized groups, including through Friends of Youth centers, and integrate family planning teaching into school health curricula.

Plans to increase services for isolated populations include:
  • Extension of local sites distributing contraceptive products;
  • Offering injectable contraceptives (DépoQ) by CHWs; and
  • Mobile clinics which will focus on offering long-term contraceptive methods.

Niger will also work to increase demand by scaling up the network of 200 Ecole Des Maris (School for Husbands), working with faith based networks, and integrating FP in the school health curriculum. To measure progress on the implementation of population policies, Niger will conduct contraceptive coverage surveys every 3 years, as well as conduct a national RHCS survey every year to follow indicators on the security of RH products, with emphasis on the availability of contraceptive products. Niger plans to have bi-annual follow-throughs of the supply chain of contraceptive products at the level of all 42 country districts and of the 8 regions as well as the national office of pharmaceutical and chemical products (ONPPC and the 3 regional ONPPC depots). In addition, Niger will introduce informative material and FP management tools (Channel software) at all levels (central, regional, district) for the monitoring and management of contraceptive commodities.
