The Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI)


The Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI) is a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation supported project that is aimed at increasing contraceptive prevalence rate by 20% point increase across its project cities of Ibadan, Ilorin, Kaduna, Zaria, Benin City and Abuja. NURHI is a 5 year project (2009 - 2014) that is presently in its fourth year of implementation. Association for Reproductive and Family Health (ARFH) is implementing the project in collaboration with John Hopkins University Centre for Communication for the Implementation of the Quality Improvement Component (Objectives 1 & 2) of the NURHI Project through training and supportive supervision.


ARFH contributes majorly to NURHI Project Objectives 1 and 2 which are:
  • Develop cost-effective interventions for integrating quality family planning with maternal and newborn health, HIV and AIDS, post-partum and post-abortion care programs;
  • Improve the quality of FP services for the urban poor with emphasis on high volume clinical settings.


In furtherance of the achievement of these objectives, ARFH/NURHI team conducts and/or provides oversight in various quality improvement activities across project LGAs in Abuja, Ibadan, Ilorin, Kaduna, Benin and Zaria.


Parts of the activities in the four initial cities focuses on building the capacity of clinical and non-clinical service providers in addition to ensuring quality and sustainable family planning service provision across NURHI high volume sites. The training activities includes long acting service provision across NURHI high volume sites. The training activities includes long acting and permanent (LAM) methods for Doctors and Nurse/Midwives and Family Planning/Interpersonal Communication and counseling skills (FP/IPCC) for Pharmacists and Patent Medicine Vendors (PMV).
