BLN Webinar: Technology Solutions for Routine Immunization Challenges in Nigeria

, , ,

The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to watch a webinar entitled “Technology Solutions to Routine Immunization Challenges in Nigeria.” End-to-end supply chain and logistics systems are key components of successful immunization programs. However, in Nigeria, supply chain and logistics systems have encountered numerous challenges particularly on the supply side, such as incomplete and inadequate data on commodity turnover and late deliveries to primary health centers (PHCs). To address these challenges, eHealth Africa (eHA) in close collaboration with the Kano State Primary Health Care Management Board (KPHCMB) developed the Logistics Management Information System (LoMIS).

Nigeria Immunization Fact Sheet

, ,

According to official country reports, infant immunization coverage in Nigeria, as reported by DTP3, increased significantly from 57% in 2008 to 74% in 2010. This was followed by a significant drop to 61% in 2011. These reported coverage improvements were primarily due to the country’s decision in 2006 to add multiple antigens and other child survival interventions to the polio eradication campaigns (now referred to as Immunization Plus Days or IPDs) that are held every 4-6 weeks in the northern polio endemic states and at least twice per year nationally. Given the challenges with disaggregating IPD and routine immunization data sub-nationally, denominator issues, and also increased routine immunization focus nationwide through the Reaching Every Ward (REW) approach, official country estimates have greatly fluctuated since 2007.

The Expanded Programme on Immunization was initiated in Nigeria in 1979 as the main strategy aimed at controlling childhood killer diseases, through provision of vaccines and immunization. The overall goal of the programme is to improve immunization coverage on a sustainable basis and reduce disease burden in all communities in Nigeria, while using immunization as platform to strengthen the overall primary health care delivery system.
