Throughout the past decade, as part of the Ouagadougou Partnership, Niger set ambitious goals to significantly improve its modern contraceptive prevalence rate by developing a costed implementation plan for family planning. The action plan outlined a goal of reaching 50 percent contraceptive prevalence by 2020. Unfortunately, this objective fell short in two major regions, Marandi and Zinder—an indication of Niger’s struggle to create accessible channels for family planning resources. HP+ is working in these regions to increase demand for family planning and reproductive health initiatives primarily through strengthening the capacity of community leaders and youth organizations to conduct community advocacy.
