Biting Off More Than You Can CHEW: What a Baseline Assessment Reveals about Community Health Workers in FCT and Plateau State
USAID’s Sustaining Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) Plus Nigeria is implementing a multi-year program to build the capacity of public and private providers to deliver quality family planning services, including long acting and reversible contraceptives through in-service training. In 2018, SHOPS Plus conducted a baseline assessment to inform program start-up and implementation. The data from the assessment provided valuable insights regarding community health extension workers and community health officers and their role in family planning provision.

This poster presented at the 2018 Nigeria Family Planning Conference showcases this data.
