Nigeria will move closer to achieving major targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by assuring adolescent girls access to health and critical social services, says the Society for Family Health (SFH).
Deputy Project Director of Adolescents 360 (A360), Pharm. Fifi Ogbondeminu, at the National Conference on Inclusivity, Equality & Diversity in University Education hosted by the University of Lagos, said the action will also promote social inclusiveness and help drive down maternal mortality, some drivers of which are unplanned pregnancies and unsafe abortion among adolescent girls and young women.
