Social franchising

We work with private clinics to increase access to family planning.

Our private sector provider network.

Our partnership with private clinics in Nigeria under the Bluestar Network helps us reach more women who need modern contraceptives and family planning.

What is social franchising?

Social franchising is changing the face of healthcare in the developing world.

In countries where the public health system is not strong, people resort to visiting private health clinics and pharmacists for their health needs. Social franchising is our own way of connecting with people through partnerships with private health clinics in various States of Nigeria.

Through our franchisees, we continue to deliver a wide range of affordable and high quality contraceptives and family planning services, for a good cause rather than for profit.


Who do we reach?

Social franchising helps us to quickly scale-up access to services for poor and under-served people.

In Nigeria, we partner with private healthcare facilities that are already providing healthcare services to people at affordable rates. By expanding the services we provide greater choice to our clients.

We are innovating ways to further reduce the cost of these already subsidised services, by looking into financing mechanisms like vouchers to enable poorer clients to afford them.

We constantly ensure that the clinical quality and service delivery is consistently high across our social franchise network from State to State, thereby making it easy for our clients to walk into any of our social franchise clinics to access services wherever they find themselves.
