In 2008, the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) in collaboration with Action Health Incorporated (AHI) commissioned an assessment of the national response to young people sexual and reproductive health in Nigeria. The assessment was conducted in two phases; a desk review and a field assessment. The findings from the desk review guided the design and conduct of the field assessment in six states (one per geopolitical zone) and FCT. The overall goal of the assessment was to optimize the health and development of young people in Nigeria. The specific objectives were: To review responses to young people's sexual and reproductive health programming in Nigeria; To identify gaps and challenges in young people's sexual and reproductive health programming; To propose action points for young people's sexual and reproductive health programming in Nigeria.
