Advocacy on Family Planning and Ending Childhood Killer Disease in Niger State

The Partnership for Advocacy in Child and Family Health at Scale (PAS) was designed as an intervention to strengthen the Nigeria Health System by creating an environment for civil society organizations to hold government at national and sub-national levels to account for its pledges, commitment and standard in healthcare service delivery within the area of child and family health. On 29th March 2019 Socio-Economic Research and Development Centre (SERDEC) signed a sub-grantee agreement with dRPC to carryout activities leading to advocacy on family planning and ending childhood killer disease in Niger State.
