Niger - Population and Health Support Project : Niger - Projet d’Appui a la Population et la Sante (法语)

The project development objective of the Population and Health Support Project for Niger is to increase the utilization of reproductive health and nutrition services in targeted areas. The project will support supply-side interventions such as improving the availability of care for women and children under five. It will be complemented by demand-side approaches to enhance utilization of services. The project is organized over four components. The first three components will work together in a mutually supportive way to address the key issues highlighted above: (a) inadequate funds and incentives to provide services; (b) insufficient demand for services; and (c) inadequate capacity for high quality service delivery. Component 1, improving the provision of high quality Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child, Adolescent Health and Nutrition (RHN) services component, aims to strengthen the supply of health and nutrition services for women of reproductive age (including young women, pregnant and lactating women) and children under age five. Component 2, increasing the demand of RHN component, aims to increase demand for RHN services by promoting social and behavior change among the main stakeholders, empowering women and improving availability and accessibility of key RHN commodities in communities. This component will operate at the community level with interpersonal communication, social marketing, social dialogue, and community mobilization services. Component 3, improving capacity to manage, coordinate, monitor, and evaluate RHN services and demand-side activities component, will support project management, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Component 4, contingent emergency response component, will improve the Government’s response capacity in the event of an emergency, following the procedures.
