Introduction

The advocacy thematic area of the Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI) complements service delivery and demand generation efforts to ensure an environment where policy makers, religious and traditional leaders and the media are very supportive of family planning.

Advocacy Kits and Policy Briefs

The NURHI 2 advocacy approach creates an enabling environment for family planning through improved policy actions and favourable dialogue from the community, religious leaders and media. This approach complements service delivery and demand generation efforts by ensuring increased uptake of high-quality family planning services.

Strategic Stakeholder Engagements

The NURHI 2 advocacy strategy and efforts are geared towards achieving increased support for family planning from key stakeholders at the federal, state and local government levels, as well as in the community. To achieve this, a plan was developed to continue engaging and educating stakeholders (including political, traditional and religious leaders) and encouraging them to use their influence in support of family planning. NURHI 2 focuses on practical, results-oriented advocacy at the national, state and local government levels to facilitate a positive policy environment in Lagos, Kaduna and Oyo States, as well as at the national level of discourse.
