‘Family planning is a primary health strategy with important benefits for both maternal and child health’
Family planning has its pivotal role in lowering maternal and child mortality and environmental stability. It is about having children by choice and not by chance. Different methods are employed to achieve this. These methods are includes Hormonal Contraceptive (pills), intra-uterine contraceptive (IUD) Female and Male sterilisation among others.

There are times I don’t have my day planned out especially when it involves my advocacy commitment: War against Sexual Harassment & Rape, Mental health and Sexual and Reproductive Health. Campaigns, visitation and outreaches just come calling and there I am on the field. This day is one of those days I was preparing to start my activities for the day when I heard the voice of a woman calling and sensitising on the need to GET IT TOGETHER.

that was a member of NUHRI 2 Oluyole Local Government Area Social mobilisers who I later identified as Mrs Olaitan Oseni calling. They numbered about 20 so I was told by Babafunke.Olatoye-Ojo their team leader who also serve as NUHRI’s social mobilisers coordinator for Ibadan South East, Ibadan South West and Oluyole in LGAs.
Family planning is central to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals SDGs.
Mrs Ayobami Ajala and Mr Olatunbosun Ọjọ́awo are other mobilisers I met with in Ire-Akari Community. These mobilesers are on neighbourhood campaigns on family planning in Ward 7 of Oluyole LGA.#getittogether for a brighter future. Visit www.getittogether.ng for more information.
https://polldaddy.com/js/rating/rating.jsA very good post. It’s high time govt at every level make this a priority through public education.
The government need to be proactive on issues of family planning and other reproductive health. From the little time I spent with the mobilisers today, I realised that more public education is needed.
People, women most especially are ignorant and weary of what family planning and use of contraceptive connotes.
NUHRI as I know is taking the right steps in the direction of sensitisation and implementation of Family planning policies.
Thank you for your unending support to the blog activities Yeye. Compliment of the season!
Indeed, it – the government – does need to put in more effort. NGOs like yours are to be commended on a subject that is greatly ignored but the consequences of which are dire.
