Hard To Reach Maternal Newborn and Child Health WHO – Value for Money 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) program in six States in Northern Nigeria. The $28m program is 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 program.

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
