Social Franchising

We work with the Private Clinics in Nigeria to increase access to modern Family Planning methods

We work with Private Clinics in Nigeria to increase access of Family Planning.

Our partnership with private clinics in Nigeria under the Bluestar Network via Social Franchising helps us to reach more women who need modern contraceptives and family planning especially in long-term reversible and permanent methods.

What is Social Franchising?

As "Franchising" is changing the face of healthcare in the developing world - countries where the public health system is not strong, people resort to visiting private health clinics and pharmacists for their health needs.  Social Franchising is our own way of connecting to the people through our partnership with private health clinics in various States of Nigeria.

Through our franchisees, we continue to deliver a wide range of high quality contraceptives and family planning services for a good cause, rather than for profit.

 

Who do we reach?

Social franchising helps us to quickly scale-up access to services so that we can reach poor and under-served women in a sustainable way. In Nigeria, we partner with private healthcare facilities that are already providing healthcare services to people at a affordable rates. By expanding the services offered by these private healthcare providers, we provide greater choice to our clients.

We are innovating ways to further reduce the cost of these already subsidised services by looking into financing mechanisms like vouchers to enable poorer clients access and afford them.

We constantly ensure that the clinical quality and service delivery are high and the same across our Social Franchise network from State to State, thereby making it easy for our clients to walk into any of our social franchise clinics to access services wherever they find themselves.
