Pathfinder International

A small donation was provided to partners at Pathfinder International in 2010 to expand distribution of the long term contraceptive method in three states: Kano, Kaduna, and Katsina.

International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF)

In 2010, Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria (PPFN), a member association of IPPF, received 400 units of LNG IUS to introduce the method among other contraceptive options into communities of seven states, namely Kaduna, Edo, Niger, Enugu, Oyo, Bauchi and Yobe states. Community-level awareness-raising activities increased women’s knowledge about the LNG IUS and other family planning methods, while community based distribution programs complemented clinic-based distribution and ultimately increased access to and utilization of the LNG IUS.
