Assessment of Gender and Supportive Supervision in Nigeria

As part of a family planning intervention in Nigeria, SHOPS Plus implemented a gender-integrated supportive supervision pilot based on a conceptual framework called gender-transformative supportive supervision (GTSS). The project conducted an assessment to understand how GTSS was implemented in the program context, how training and discussions related to gender in the workplace were received by supervisors and providers, and how these supervision sessions influenced provider outcomes related to retention and quality of care. This brief presents the findings from the assessment together with implications and recommendations for addressing gender barriers in the workplace through supportive supervision, with particular consideration for private sector contexts.
