Interventions to Reach Married Adolescents for Increased Contraceptive Use in Niger
This brief describes a project called Reaching Married Adolescents, which represents one of the first efforts in Niger to compare the ability of different interventions to increase the number of married adolescents who use a method of contraception. The project was developed with lessons learned from years of programming among similar populations in different contexts.
It was designed to generate evidence around three intervention approaches that target individual, social, and structural factors contributing to uptake and use. Specifically, the project aims to compare the effectiveness and the cost of implementing 1) household visits, 2) small group sessions, and 3) a combined package of household visits and small group sessions among married adolescents in three health districts: Dosso, Doutchi, and Loga.
The brief offers a description of the project, methodology, results, and lessons learned.
