Women have advocated for reproductive health, child spacing and family planning in the 16 local councils of Taraba. According to them, observance of family planning methods would reduce the high infant and maternal rate in the state. The State Programme Coordinator of TCI, Dr. Sarki Othman, said the state government was committed to selling the idea convincingly to the citizens. In the same vein, the State Technical Support Lead for Demand Generation (STSL, DG), Victoria Mohammed Ibe, lauded TSPHCDA’s efforts, enthusing that the teething hiccups would be overcome soon. She urged husbands to support their wives in enthroning healthy homes.
