DJdEZfCX0AAkGxV

UNFPA in collaboration with USAID and the Federal Ministry of Health organized the 5th Annual Family Planning Consultative Stakeholders Meeting and the Launch of the National Family Planning Communication Plan and Logo.

The 2017 edition of the Annual Family Planning Meeting rallied stakeholders attention to health and non-health benefits of the national family planning program with the theme “Investing in Family Planning: Key to Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in Nigeria”.

The three days meeting held from Monday 11th September to Wednesday 13th September 2017 at Transcorp Hotel Abuja convened by the Honourable Minister of Health with financial support from UNFPA Nigeria Country Office and technical support from development partners.

The first day was focused on a high level advocacy event with attendance of the Minister of State for Budget & National Planning, Zainab Ahmed; Chairman Senate Committee on Health, Sen. Olanrewaju Tejuoso; The Commissioners of Health from the 36 States + FCT, Traditional/Religious Leaders (including Ooni of Ife, Sultan of Sokoto, ably represented by the Emir of Shonga, and CAN President), Foreign Missions, Donors and national, regional and global experts.

The Sultan of Sokoto and Spiritual Leader of Muslims in Nigeria, Muhammad Abubakar III, says Islam is not against family planning.

He, however, said the message of the advocates of child spacing must be modified in such a way that would be acceptable to the people.

Abubakar said this while delivering a speech at the 5th Annual Family Planning Consultative Stakeholders’ Meeting in Abuja on Monday, September 11.

Abubakar, who was represented by the Emir of Shonga, Dr. Haliru Yahaya, said overpopulation in northern Nigeria could be curbed the same way polio was eradicated.

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi reiterated his commitment to advocating for child spacing which he said he is very passionate about and an investment which all stakeholders should participate in. He called the loss of lives due to maternal and infant deaths a national disaster, likening it to deaths of future leaders who lose their lives in a plane crash.

“There is no difference between what we are here for today and that of a national disaster. You can imagine losing 110 women on a daily basis in this country.

He stressed the need to engage people in discussions about family planning.
“We should continue to sensitise the youths because it happens within that age bracket and discuss with traders, our drivers and hired domestic helps. Refer them to where they can get assistance because you will be saving lives. We should continue to invest in family planning.”

The second day was strictly technical in nature with development partners, young people and civil society, The Directors of Public Health and FP Coordinators from the 36 States with support from development and implementing partners. The participation was broad based and included Religious leaders, NGOs, and CSOs.

The third day focused on capacity building for State partners on implementation modalities for the FP Communication Plan.

Six states, namely Kaduna, Adamawa, Ogun, Ekiti, Enugu and Bayelsa States featured in terms of presentation of progress and challenges in implementation of family program. These six states have experienced significant increases in CPR and mCPR between 2008 and 2013 (DHS) and it would add value to the learning of other states about how such progress was achieved and sustained.
