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

The operations research study described in this policy brief, “Building Evidence to Support the Provision of Implants at the Community Level through TaskSharing,” directly responds to WHO’s recommendations. Conducted from April 2015-June 2016 in Cross River and Kaduna states, Nigeria, the study assessed the effects of Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWs) providing implants on contraceptive uptake at health facilities in select Local Government Areas (LGAs) 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 (FP) tasks to include provision of implants.
