UNFPA Nigeria

Nigeria has a dynamic economy and a large population expected to double in the next two decades. Though maternal mortality rates have fallen, the overall numbers of maternal deaths remain high, contraceptive prevalence is low and teenage pregnancy high. UNFPA programmes focus on improving maternal and newborn health, combating fistula and providing access to sexual and reproductive health of young people. Family planning measures aim to broaden access to high-quality services and improved management of contraceptives. Other efforts assist in producing key demographic data for development planning.
