Commitment Maker


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.
