Ensuring the sustainability of improved family planning service delivery beyond the life of the project is a guiding principle of the project’s design and implementation. The project collaborates closely with the state ministries of health and uses their systems to ensure that human and financial resources are available to the program. Nigerian government family planning program counterparts at the federal, state and local levels participate in planning, implementation, and evaluation to engender their ownership of the program. The project is working to ensure government planning and budgeting units are engaged so that the state allocates more resources to family planning programming. The team is collaborating with Breakthrough Action to show providers that the availability of quality family planning service delivery creates community trust and can help produce a long-term positive change in provider behavior.
