HP+ worked with the Mother and Child Health Directorate, through the Ministry of Health, and other stakeholders in Niger to apply the DemDiv modeling tool to evaluate four scenarios to estimate the potential economic benefit of a change in population size and age structure brought on by increased access to and use of family planning, combined with other investments and policy changes. The findings presented in this brief demonstrate that a strategy emphasizing family planning along with education and the economy will save the lives of more than 8.4 million children and 575,000 women over the period of 2015 to 2055. With an active (working) population increase to 67 percent of the total population by 2055, the country would realize a 38 percent increase in per capita income by 2055 as compared to the scenario that puts focus solely on education and the economy.
