Lessons from Nigeria in collaborative planning for health campaign programs
September 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am EDT
The Health Campaign Effectiveness Program awarded the Clinton Health Access Initiative and Ibolda Health International, both based in Nigeria, funding to identify, support and document collaborative planning approaches for integrated health campaigns. On 1 September 2021, the awardees will enhance the Health Campaign Effectiveness Coalition’s understanding of the complex and collaborative process that requires input from multiple stakeholders from the different health programs and across the global, national, regional and local levels of governments and implementing partners to deliver integrated campaigns.
The Presentation Teams
- The Clinton Health Access Initiative conducted a retrospective study of lessons learnt from the 2019/2020 implementation of Measles and Meningitis A integrated campaigns in Northern Nigeria in the context of COVID – a case study of Kogi, Niger and Kwara States. The Clinton Health Access Initiative collaborated with the Federal Ministry of Health and the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, National Bureau of Statistics, and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control. In this presentation, the Clinton Health Access Initiative draws on their experience working on delivery of supplemental immunization campaigns (SIA) and mass vaccination campaigns with key partners in the Government of Nigeria.
- Ibolda Health International supported facilitation and documentation of the collaborative planning phase of campaign integration. The project took place in Gombe and Jigawa States. The project addressed seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) and distribution of insecticide treated nets (ITN). Ibolda Health International collaborated with the National Malaria Elimination Programme and associated sub-committees.
With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The Health Campaign Effectiveness Program made eight collaborative campaign planning awards in response to a knowledge gap surfaced in the first annual Coalition meeting last October. Participants expressed a need to learn about the negotiation and decision-making process used by countries and partners when considering whether and how best to integrate campaigns. Participants called for documentation about how countries implement collaborative campaign planning and the factors that enable or hinder such collaboration. Participants were interested in learning about approaches used to develop shared data systems, joint microplans, budgets, logistics and other infrastructure, and develop joint communication, monitoring and evaluation plans.
This lessons-learned event aims to advance learning, collaboration and communication across health campaign disease domains, and among campaign planners, implementers, and evaluators that represent government agencies, multi- and bi-lateral organizations, funding and philanthropic organizations, academia, and implementing partner organizations. This event is hosted by the Health Campaign Effectiveness Program of the Task Force for Global Health and highlights innovative campaign approaches and delivery models.
