Family planning: Nasarawa women advocate safe commodities to tackle bleeding

Thursday, February 4, 2021

Some women in Nasarawa State have advocated for the production of safe family planning consumables that could ease days of bleeding for women that assessed family planning services. They also called for the training and retraining of family planning service providers to update their skills to better handle clients at family planning units.
They made the call in an interview during a tour of Primary Health Care (PHC) facilities by journalists who assessed the level of family planning services in parts of Nasarawa. The tour was organised by Development Communication Network (DevComs). Speaking in an interview at the PHC, Nasarawa Eggon, Rakiya Adamu, 30, said, “I am here to assess family planning services because it will help me to space my children and to take care of them better. But my problem is the bleeding especially after taking the implant method.”
