In Nigeria since 1965.
In 1965, Pathfinder helped establish the Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria and provided the first grant in family planning to the Nigerian Ministry of Health for pilot work in northern communities. Since that date, Pathfinder has worked with the government, community-based organizations, the private sector, faith-based institutions, and communities themselves to strengthen health systems and delivery of sexual and reproductive health care. We have reached some of Nigeria’s most underserved people with reproductive health care, including first-time mothers, refugee communities, and families in rural areas. Today, we are part of a nationwide effort to increase acceptance of and access to COVID-19 vaccines.
