This report covers the Camber Collective report on researching contraceptive use in Niger. Fertility in Niger has remained high despite overall decreases across Sub-Saharan Africa.

The objectives of the project were:

  • Provide a baseline understanding of family planning dynamics in Niger that can be used by any family planning partner (government, donor, or NGO) to inform its strategy and programming
  • Identify the most significant opportunities—related to demand and supply of contraceptives—to drive an increase in women’s modern contraceptive use in Niger
  • Describe how the stakeholders to this project and their partners might adjust their grant-making and programming in Niger to address these opportunities

The report describes the three phases of the project:

  1. Phase I: Qualitative consumer research
  2. Phase II: Quantitative consumer research
  3. Phase III: Other strategic considerations and strategy development

Also described are the research methodology and the findings.  The overall finding of the project was that demand issues were the leading driver in low use of contraceptives.
