1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Well-designed mass-media campaigns have proved their ability to increase the use of family planning in Nigeria. Between 1985 and 1988, television promotion of family planning in the cities of Ilorin, Ibadan, and Enugu helped increase the numbers of new and continuing contraceptive users (Piotrow et al., 1990). After the campaign, the number of new clients had almost quintupled in Ilorin, tripled in Ibadan, and more than doubled in Enugu. About half of respondents surveyed reported having seen the family planning messages on television; of these viewers, more than two-thirds recalled the specific clinics promoted. In Borno State, meanwhile, a mass-media campaign involving radio, television, print materials, and an advocacy forum with religious leaders showed similar results. The number of first-time users in sentinel clinics rose by 24 percent over pre-campaign levels, and the number of continuing users rose 37 percent (Kiragu and Omotara, 1992). Research in
