Engaging Religious Leaders

NURHI has formed an interfaith forum in each city.  The interfaith forum comprises of religious leaders drawn from the Islamic and Christian faith who are supportive of Family Planning.  The interfaith forum works closely with the ACGs in the community to enhance support for FP in the communities. These are groups of religious leaders who meet each year to discuss family planning. 

Early on, Advocacy Nigeria, a NURHI collaborating partner conducted training on family planning advocacy skills in each of the NURHI cities. A major area of focus under this strategy was to draw attention of the members to family planning links to development, correct mis-information and misconception and address other sensitivities related to FP use and encourages religious leaders to speak openly in support of family planning.
