Changing lives in Nigeria

Nigerian MA outreach

Family Planning for the future

Nigeria has Africa’s biggest population. And it’s still growing at 3% a year.

A lack of family planning is one reason – many women and girls want contraception – but like millions around the world – can’t get it.

But that could be about to change, thanks to a pilot project run by Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria (PPFN), IPPF’s national member. It’s proving a huge success.

This is its story, told by the women whose lives it has changed and the people working to change them.

I decided to use this clinic because I heard a lot of success stories about it. It was through the outreach service in my community that I found out about the Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria. The interesting thing about PPFN's project in Oyo state is that if you need access to family planning, but can't pay, you can still get it.
