In Nigeria since 1965.
With 196 million people, Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa. Millions lack access to essential health services. 86% of married women of reproductive age aren’t using a modern method of contraception. Each year, an estimated 58,000 women die from complications in pregnancy and childbirth—more than any other country on Earth.
We believe every person, regardless of where they live, has a right to sexual and reproductive health. Our commitment to the people of Nigeria runs deep. For over 50 years and counting, we’ve joined local partners to make sure the hardest-to-reach people can protect their health and transform their futures.
