#NaijaMen4FP: How Can Men Be Change Agents in Family Planning? with Jenny Chisom

Why are most men not involved in Family planning? Has that apathy any effect whatsoever on reproductive health? Join us on Wednesday as we discuss #NaijaMen4FP with @Nigeriahealthwatch
As posted on Twitter and Facebook like me.

I received this email by an organisation, Nigeria Health Watch,

Here is an excerpt

Dear Jenny, Nigeria is facing a population explosion, which if not meaningfully tackled, will affect our ability as a country to meet the needs of every Nigerian. In no sector is this more obvious than in the health sector. Family planning is one of the leading strategies to improve family life and welfare, control unwanted population growth, and aid the development of the nation. Though traditional family planning programs focus primarily on women, men are often the primary decision makers about family size, health services, and family planning methods. In light of this, Nigeria Health Watch will hold its first Health Watch Forum of the year, themed “The Elephant in the Room - Men as Change Agents in Family Planning Discourse.” We hope that the Forum will give an opportunity to enlighten the Nigerian health sector, help create a greater sense of urgency to address the low Contraceptive Prevalence Rate and increase uptake of Family Planning commodities. Ahead of the forum, Nigeria Health Watch will be holding a Tweet chat to raise awareness about the importance of men in the family planning discourse (#NaijaMen4FP). We recognise the work that you do in male empowerment and would like you to participate in our Tweet chat....

It feels good to be recognised for one's work. So do join the Tweet chat on Wednesday 3pm (Lagos time).

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
