Thanks in part to PHI’s Champions for Change, under-served families in Nigeria now have access to free, comprehensive healthcare services, helping to reduce the high rates of maternal and infant mortality. The program's country representative played an instrumental role in advocating for the law’s passage, leading targeted efforts towards religious stakeholders and developing messages for collective advocacy efforts. All proved successful in December 2015 when the President signed the National Health Bill into law, helping to keep millions of Nigerian women and children healthier.
