- Support two cadres of health workers—relais communautaires and Agents de Santé Communautaire—to offer services for healthy timing and spacing

Initiative de Mobilisation pour l’Accès à la Contraception pour Tous
Niger’s total fertility rate is 7.6 births—the highest in the world. In 2013, the government committed to increasing contraceptive prevalence to 50% by 2020 (compared to 12% in 2012). In two regions, we advocate for healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies and accelerate access to contraception—especially injectables and long-acting reversible contraception—to achieve Niger’s national goals.
