E4A Mamaye – Health Financing case-study in 3 states in Nigeria


The Project

Since starting in 2012, the Evidence for Action (E4A) programme has used a combination of evidence to drive accountability for maternal and new-born health outcomes. E4A commissioned LAMP Development to conduct a case-study examining the impact of Covid-19 on funding for RMNCH services in three Nigerian states – Bauchi, Niger and Lagos. It aimed to identify how allocation and release of funding for RMNCH changed in the year preceding the COVID-19 pandemic and during the pandemic and the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to these changes.
The case-study enabled E4A and relevant stakeholders to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic affected the funding for RMNCH, informing E4A’s programming for the coming year.


  • Healthcare financing related case-study using quantitative and qualitative methods
  • Conducted remotely in short timeframe
  • Analysis and findings provide opportunity for future advocacy and also raised important questions for further research

Client Testimonial
