Contraceptive Service Integration: What Do Service Providers in Maternal and Child Health Sites Do? Harmonizing contraceptive services with other healthcare services expand access to family planning services. Increased access to family planning services improves the reproductive health of women in a population and help them achieve their fertility intentions. The Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI) II midline health facility survey data for service providers conducted in July 2016 in three states (Oyo, Lagos and Kaduna) was analyzed in this abstract. Our results show about three quarters of providers offer Antenatal care (ANC) services, when offering ANC services 97% provides information about Family Planning routinely, 55% help a woman to select a suitable method for post-delivery,88% use counseling job aids to provide Family Planning services and 70.3% encourage women to wait for some time before the next pregnancy. Integration points increase access to comprehensive care, saves time and reduces costs.
