MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership Nigeria will share lessons and insights from the project’s efforts to address major contributors to maternal mortality and morbidity through the prevention and mitigation of the consequences of violence against women and girls, as well as possible drivers of child and early forced marriages. The project supports laws, policies, guidelines, and strategies that address these areas, and works through local partners to provide communities with appropriate information and knowledge to act to transform discriminatory gender and social norms that continue to subordinate women.
