-Healthy Timing and Spacing

The Post Pregnancy Family Planning (PPFP) is a four-year project (2017-2021) funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and MSD for Mothers that aims to achieve an increase in the contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR) in Lagos State by reducing ideational barriers linked to knowledge, misperceptions, spousal communication, self-efficacy, and risk perception for post-pregnancy women and families.

The Wise Woman's Diary entertainment-education video series chronicles a woman's experiences as she traverses the various stages of the post-pregnancy period. The series promotes birth preparedness, spousal communication, early decision-making and family planning methods safety--immediately after delivery and whilst breastfeeding.   They are designed to be shown in private health facilities in Lagos that serve post-pregnant women.  

This booklet, written in French, Hausa, and Arabic, was developed by Transform/PHARE to support the Sarari intervention. It provides guidance to those delivering sermons on how to incorporate themes about many family welfare topics.

These brochures serve as a way of reinforcing information about family planning. They are distributed in Nigerian communities to remind community members of the benefits of birth spacing at all levels of society from the individual to the family and community level.
