Over the course of two weeks, the SHOPS Plus family planning team in Nigeria hosted five “pause and reflect” events in four cities, bringing together over 1,100 stakeholders. The stakeholders included family planning providers, trainers, USAID, implementing partners, and officials from both the national and state governments.
After the training, the men are now involved. Before they were not. Because now they are involved as clients, as supportive partners, as agents of change in the community.
