HOPE JEREMIAH OFFOR
Health outcomes amongst youth in Nigeria are ever worsening. While the country has some of the best health policies focusing on young people's sexual and reproductive health, there are severe shortcomings when it comes to implementation. Government and other concerned stakeholders have not shown enough commitments and accountability when it comes to putting policies into practice and cover our needs.
My project generates qualitative data about youth needs in sexual and reproductive health and rights across the country. We use this data to create evidence-based advocacy campaigns and make Government and other actors accountable in the implementation of these policies. This will contribute to achieving the following goals:
- SDG 3.7: By 2030, ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services, including for family planning, information and education, and the integration of reproductive health into national strategies and programs
- SDG 5.6: Ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights as agreed in accordance with the Program of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Beijing Platform for Action and the outcome documents of their review conferences
