Project Example

Collection of FP Commodities from the State Government

Access to quality and affordable Family planning {FP) services is crucial in improving Maternal and Child health (MCH) indices in Nigeria. High quality FP services is a key determinant of contraceptive uptake, and availability of a full range of commodities enables a woman to make an informed decision and increases contraceptive uptake and continuation.

To enable the private sector to provide affordable FP services to its clients, the Post Pregnnacy Family Planning project obtained approval from the Lagos State Ministry of Health for the provision of free commodities to the supported private health facilities.

This collaboration between supported private health facilities and the State Government is based on certain criteria and steps as stated in this document.
