Nigeria

SFH Nigeria

In 1985, PSI and several prominent Nigerians founded the Society for Family Health Nigeria (SFH Nigeria), which has now become one of Nigeria’s largest non-governmental organizations. SFH Nigeria was founded with the mission of helping Nigerians, particularly the poor and vulnerable, to lead healthier lives. 

PSI Nigeria

In 2018, PSI opened its PSI Nigeria office to implement the Women’s Health Project, which increases access to safe abortion and long-acting reversible contraceptives through innovative interventions in both the public and private sectors.

Practice Areas
We Focus On

PSI Nigeria works in partnership with the Society for Family Health Nigeria to expand access to sexual and reproductive health by making new and underused methods of contraception more available. It works closely with girls and young women to design programs that work with their unique needs.

PSI Nigeria works to increase the acceptability, availability, accessibility and quality of safe abortion and post-abortion care in Nigeria and address barriers to the uptake of long-acting reversible contraception, ultimately aiming to reduce unintended pregnancies. PSI Nigeria does so by taking a holistic approach to its work at all levels of the socio-ecological model and influences both policy and practice through a combination of behavior change communications, service delivery and advocacy.
