Introduction:

Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria (PPFN) is a volunteer-based, non-governmental Organization established in 1964 to provide and enable services and champion Sexual Reproductive health and Rights (SRHR) for all.

As a result of message testing, we now have a clear understanding of which general message framing is most effective to incite a positive shift in attitude with our target audiences. We have also chosen channels of communication based on our understanding of the target audiences and As a next step, we are looking to work with a digital communications expert to develop a social media strategy for young people in Kano State Nigeria.
