Expanding our scope and capacity
We continue to extend the services we offer in Nigeria to increase the uptake of sexual and reproductive health services.
Our centre in Abuja offers a range of reproductive health services to urban communities, including family planning services, emergency contraception, pre and post-natal care, diagnosis and treatment of STIs, pregnancy testing, voluntary counselling and testing for HIV, ultrasound and laboratory services.
In addition to our centre, we employ mobile outreach teams – composed of doctors, nurses and drivers, who travel to hard-to-reach areas of Nigeria – to offer a range of contraceptive services to those who need them the most. We also provide services through our BlueStar social franchise network, allowing communities across the country to access contraception from quality assured private pharmacies, and all at affordable prices.
Working together with the government of Nigeria, as well as existing private health care providers, we have trained over 300 franchisees to deliver high quality family planning services to women across Nigeria.
