Male Health Workers Increase Access to Family Planning in Sokoto


The Nigeria Targeted States High Impact Project (TSHIP), worked with the federal government to expand the role of community health extension workers (CHEWs)–many of whom are men–to include technically demanding functions such as the insertion of long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) methods. Within six months, the CHEWs had demonstrated 93% proficiency and had provided family planning services that helped more than 10,000 couples delay pregnancy. JSI/TSHIP, 2015.
