Building Evidence to Support the Provision of Implants at Community Level through Task-Sharing

Conducted from April 2015-June 2016 in Cross River and Kaduna states, Nigeria, the study described in this policy brief assessed the effects of Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWs) providing implants on contraceptive uptake at health facilities in select Local Government Areas  of the two Nigerian states. Evidence from the study will be used to support operationalization of a recent policy shift in Nigeria that expands CHEWs’ current family planning tasks to include provision of implants.
