Hard To Reach Maternal Newborn & Child Health VFM analysis

Nigeria

The Project

LAMP was commissioned by WHO to undertake a cost outcome assessment of the hard to reach (HTR) maternal newborn and child health (MNCH) programme in six States in Northern Nigeria. The $28m programme was funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and was implemented by WHO and UNICEF in Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Bauchi, Yobe and Borno. The programme aims to improve quality of life for women and children through the strengthening of health systems in North Nigeria. An economic evaluation was undertaken to determine the overall value for money of the HTR/MNCH programme.

Highlights

  • Our team combined health economics experts with researcher-led field work
  • Initial findings on unit costs per beneficiary were shared with stakeholders and received positive feedback from state government representatives

Client Testimonial

The framework was very well received by the team. The engagement was carried out in a planned, consultative and thorough manner. Communication style, interaction with partners, response timeliness are all excellent.
