Access to Quality Family Planning Services: Increasing access to contraceptives through training of CHEWs to implement Task-shifting Policy in FP service delivery in Nigeria- Jan 2014 to Dec 2017

ARFH was instrumental in constituting a formal Task shifting policy for family planning in Nigeria for the federal government with the goal to increase uptake of contraceptives, bridge barrier to reduce the unmet needs for family planning in Nigeria.

This is through task-shifting to CHEWS and assuring enabling policy/community environment for sustainable service delivery and utilization. ARFH in collaboration with the Federal and State Ministries of Health with support from United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) organized and conducted a national training for Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWs) to enable them provide injectable contraceptives (LARC, DMPA and Noristerat) in Nigeria. The four-year Project was entitled ‘Increasing access to contraceptives through training of CHEWs as part of task-shifting policy in Nigeria’ (INACT).

Let's engage.
