Francis Eremutha of the Women Friendly Initiative in Nigeria will develop and conduct surveys to identify the reasons why Nigerian men prefer certain contraceptives to help design new ones that men are more likely to use. Currently, there are limited male contraceptive options available, and they suffer from being ineffective, undesirable, or irreversible. The surveys will be both field-based and online, and will be designed to capture the opinions of married and unmarried Nigerian men between the ages of 15 and 60 across six states. They will develop the research protocol in collaboration with the Federal and State Ministries of Health, and train field workers, develop collection tools, and perform quantitative and qualitative analyses of the data.
