Changing lives in Nigeria

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. LAUNCH THE INTERACTIVE STORY

Creating a one-stop shop of services in Nigeria

On the ground in Nigeria, one of programme officers explains why outreach is so successful: “The project was a one-stop shop which brought services together. So a woman could have screening for breast and cervical cancer, counselling and have access to all methods of family planning at the same place. Also if a woman was detected with early stage of cervical cancer, we were able to carry out a curative operation."
