Research, Monitoring & Evaluation

Advocacy: The Project constantly engages the two key Associations; Association of General and Private Medical Practitioners of Nigeria; (AGPMPN) Lagos branch; and Association of General and Private Nursing Practitioners of Nigeria (AGPNP) Lagos branch to facilitate entry into the clinical private sector health facilities, and most importantly the facility owners to address structural and ideational barriers to the integration of FP services.

Demand Generation: The project reduces Ideational barriers linked to knowledge, misperceptions, spousal communication, self-efficacy, risk perception for post-pregnancy women and families. Also addresses the low perception of quality family planning services in the private sector.

Service Delivery: The project reduces private sector provider ideational barriers such as lack of incentives, provider bias (linked to age, method, parity), cost (consumer), fear of losing core business, the perception of FP as a losing proposition. In addition, also reduces structural barrier such as lack of clinic profit, commodities logistics management, expense and time needed to integrate FP into MNCH services, and staff turnover.
