Expanding Access to Family Planning Services

NURHI 2 used proven and new strategies to improve access to a wide range of modern contraceptive methods. Its goal was to reach every woman in need of contraception with high-quality family planning services. To achieve this goal, NURHI 2 prevented missed opportunities by:

  • Integrating family planning services with all maternal and child health services

  • Scaling up to new high-volume sites, new Local Government Areas and rural areas of project states

  • Conducting facility and community-based outreaches to boost uptake of family planning services to underserved communities

  • Promoting the Task Shifting and Task Sharing Policy to enable Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWs) and Community Health Officers (CHOs) to provide long-acting, reversible, family planning methods
