This brief explains MCSP’s implementation of an activity in Kogi and Ebonyi states in Nigeria to address the needs of pregnant and parenting adolescents, with the ultimate objective of increasing use of ANC, safe delivery, and PPFP services to delay a subsequent pregnancy. To inform planning for this intervention, MCSP conducted formative research to understand the SRH needs of adolescent mothers in Ebonyi and Kogi states and the service gaps in the current system.
