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.

Results & Indicators

Expected Results

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).
