The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Through the Building Blocks project, we support the Nigerian and Pakistani governments to meet their national contraception goals. In Nigeria, we are working to increase access to a broad range of contraceptive methods. In Pakistan, we are partnering with two provincial governments to develop supportive contraceptive policies.
- Trained champions in both countries to advocate for supportive policies and an enabling environment for contraceptive use
- Supported two provincial governments in Pakistan to hold consultative sessions with key stakeholders and eventually develop contraception costed implementation plans
- Trained health providers in Nigeria to offer a wide range of contraceptive methods
- Worked with health authorities in Nigeria to expand the range of health providers permitted to provide implants
