This project was implemented in Kebbi and Sokoto States with the support of UNFPA using a community-based distribution approach in collaboration with 2 CBOs with the aim of increasing access to RH/FP services.
While the capacity of the 2 CBOs was built in project management, a total of 100 community members were trained as CBD agents with responsibility for awareness creation and provision of short term family planning methods.
In addition, 50 men were trained as RH/FP advocates to reach out to their male (18,128) counterparts. The project reached a total of 43,399 with FP services, 6,754 with other RH services while 12,778 received treatment for minor ailments.
In addition, another community-based RH/FP project funded by T.Y. Danjuma Foundation was implemented in Taraba State to increase knowledge on maternal mortality reduction practices which contributed to increased utilisation of services at PHCs in the project communities as a result of linkages and referrals between the CBD agents and the health facilities.
