NURHI Phase 1 (2009 – 2015)
Phase 1 of NURHI was implemented in six cities (Federal Capital Territory, Ibadan, Ilorin, Kaduna, Benin and Zaria). According to the 2013 Nigeria Demographic and Health Survey, it contributed to significant increases in contraceptive prevalence in these cities.
NURHI 2 assisted the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) to assess their knowledge management practices and systems, identify gaps, and develop skills to address those gaps. NURHI 2 conducted mini in-house sessions on documentation, dissemination and archiving. It also introduced FMOH to the use of webinars and other technological platforms to share knowledge efficiently and economically.
With assistance from NURHI 2, FMOH developed Guidelines for Knowledge Management.
In preparation for the 5th Nigeria Family Planning Conference, NURHI 2 supported the Association for Advancement of Family Planning (AAFP) to develop a comprehensive storybook highlighting communiques from past conferences and individual testimonials from both the demand and supply sides of Family Planning in Nigeria.
One of the products of NURHI 2 is the production of NURHI storybook themed “MAKING FAMILY PLANNING A SOCIAL NORM”. The story told in the book highlights the FP situation when NURHI entered the FP space.
To simplify scale-up of NURHI proven approaches to new geographies, NURHI 2 produced the following: Adapting a Radio Magazine Programme in a New Geography – A How-to Guide, a Guide to Social Mobilization, a Guide to Setting Up and Managing Family Planning Advocacy Working Groups and a Guide to Organizing 72-Hour Clinic Makeovers.
