This project aims to maintain the gains made towards polio eradication in Nigeria while strengthening the routine immunization system. Activities include: (1) develop village-level micro-plans (vaccination plans detailed down to the household level) to immunize every child against polio (approximately 6.6 million girls and 6.9 million boys); (2) provide training for, and support deployment of, 154,000 vaccination team members (male and female); (3) conduct training for up to 8000 health workers to improve capacity for routine immunization; and (4) conduct intensified routine immunization activities to protect up to 250,000 children from vaccine preventable diseases. The project ultimately seeks to eradicate polio in Nigeria.

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: (1) increased and sustained herd immunity (when the vaccination of a significant portion of a population provides a measure of protection) against polio virus in 11 polio high risk states; and (2) increased protection against common vaccine preventable diseases (VPDs) in select local government areas (LGAs).
