Many researchers have demonstrated how investing in family planning leads to population control and human capital and national development. Therefore, all countries aspiring to achieve national development should prioritise increasing contraceptive use in order to control population increase.

Tragically, the use of contraceptives is not widely accepted in many underdeveloped nations, like Nigeria, where progress is further impeded by a worsening economic slump caused by the population explosion.
