At most PMTCT sites in Nigeria, family planning services are offered as part of the PMTCT programme centred on antenatal care and maternal and child health services. Part of the package is family planning counselling and information on contraceptive methods.
Generally, family planning counselling and services are part of PMTCT routine care services for all pregnant women, irrespective of their HIV status clients.
