As part of the Lafiya Programme, Options plays a key role in strengthening civil society advocacy for increased public investment in health at the federal level and across the five states in Nigeria (Borno, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano and Yobe). Working with civil society coalitions and State Led Accountability Mechanisms (SLAMs) we have supported the development of a range of evidence informed advocacy resources that make the case for the prioritisation of health investments. Below are examples of such advocacy briefs as well as case studies that document our successes.
