Association for Reproductive and Family Health (ARFH) is an indigenous not for profit organization committed to improving quality of life of under-served and vulnerable communities in Nigeria. ARFH has grown to become the leading Nigerian NGO in the FP/RH field. In 2008 ARFH was rated by the independent observer, AIDSPAN, as the best indigenous NGO globally, and the sixth best performing Principal Recipient of the Global Fund project globally. ARFH has, within our three decades of existence, successfully managed and implemented over 120 innovative reproductive health and development projects in all the states of the Federation and neighboring African countries. Most of these have gained national and international recognition and are being replicated by organizations nationwide.
In the last 3 decades of ARFH existence, the organization has conducted several training programmes designed to empower trainees and help them develop unique competencies in their areas of operation. Our target is both health and non-health professional who are involved in health care including direct service delievery, Health promotion/education, Advocacy, Management and Research Monitoring and Evaluation. We have over the years trained professionals from the private, public and the NGO sectors.
The trainings organized by ARFH have substantially impacted on individuals and communities at the micro level and the nation at the macro level. ARFH provides technical support to national institutions in developing capacity and effective systems to manage and coordinate programmes relating to HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis.
