2030: Experts say, adopting family planning will ensure attainment of SDGs in Nigeria

Tuesday, March 10, 2020

 Family health experts have expressed the view that voluntary adoption of family planning policy, could help Nigeria attain the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) come 2030.
 
The experts stated this on Wednesday at a 3-day Training Workshop on Media Advocacy on Family Planning in Delta.
 
The workshop was organised by the Development Communications (DevComs) Network, a non-Governmental Organisation, in collaboration with The Challenge Initiative (TCI) in Asaba.
 
The Delta TCI Programme Coordinator, Mrs Nwanne Kalu, said the training was to create an advocacy to promote family planning programmes in the state.
 
“TCI came with technical support to adopt and implement family planning programmes and its programme is concentrated in the urban poor areas of the state.
 
“The TCI is currently working in about 16 states of the federation to create advocacy, generate demand for family planning programmes and ensure adequate service delivery.
 
“We work with states to increase voices, identify champions to speak on family planning and the attendant’s challenges of high population growth and the need for child spacing to ensure proper development of the family and the nation’s economy for healthy living.
