Niger

In Niger, most girls are married and begin childbearing before they surpass childhood themselves. Among young women currently between ages 20 and 24, 75 percent are married before age 18 and 30 percent before age 15. At the same time, only 13 percent of women between the ages of 20-24 are using a contraceptive method, and among adolescents between the ages of 15-19 just 6 percent of girls use contraceptives.

Policy Analysis of iCCM

Research Overview

Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) of the leading causes of child death (pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria) is emerging as a policy and programmatic priority for many sub-Saharan countries. While there is a significant body of scientific evidence that supports iCCM, this may not necessarily be translated into supportive policies or programmatic designs that allow for the effective scaling up of iCCM in many countries.
