WorldStage Newsonline– Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI) has raised an alarm that family planning commodities may become scare as government was yet to release fund for procurement in 2014, and that it only released part of its commitment in 2013.


Nigerian government has a Memorandum of Understanding to release $3 million every year for procurement of family planning products.

As Nigeria approaches 2015, fears have been raised on the possibility of the country meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), especially on goals three and four which bothered on maternal and child mortality.


Dr. Mojisola Odeku, National Coordinator, NURHI at the weekend warned that the gains made in maternal and child mortality might be reversed if the country fails to meet up with its commitment to family planning in the country.
