Research & Evaluation
Over the past 6 years, we have supported with organizations to conduct high quality researches, develop strategy documents, deliver professional courses and lots more. Few examples of consultancies we have delivered include the following:
1. Mid-term evaluation of the SURE-P Maternal, Newborn and Child Health project in Bauchi, Kaduna, FCT, Bayelsa, Anambra and Lagos States;
2. Evaluation of the African Union support to stem the Ebola outbreak in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone;
3. Training of Chief Medical Directors of private and public hospitals on population health and healthcare leadership (delivered as a member of the Healthcare Leadership Academy)

7. Impact evaluation of Maternal, Newborn and Child Health interventions funded by the TY Danjuma Foundation over a 10-year period
8. Documentation of FHI360’s primary health care and nutrition project at Dikwa, Borno State
9. Data collection and evidence generation for the Giving Birth in Nigeria MNCH Project, implemented by Nigeria Health Watch, EpiAFRIC and Africare across Seven States in Nigeria.
10. Rapid Assessment of Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (IDSR) with focus on Tuberculosis in Niger, Bauchi, Abuja, Kano, Lagos, Rivers and Anambra States.
11. Baseline Survey for Prevalence and Incidence of Obstetric Fistula in Katsina State and Federal Capital Territory, Nigeria.
The ‘Why Are Women Dying While Giving Birth in Nigeria?’ report presents state-by-state analyses of the causes of maternal deaths of women in the communities surveyed. Insights include the health-seeking behaviour of women in communities, why maternal deaths occurred, where women died while giving birth and who attended to them.
The enrollment of beneficiaries requires strategic communication that will enhance their knowledge and positively shift their attitudes and behaviors towards engaging in the scheme and seeking health care. Effective communication will relay the essence of the scheme and the benefits enrollees will derive from being a part of it.
The Evaluation was carried out using both quantitative and qualitative methods. Quantitative aspects of the evaluation were carried on using monitored data submitted quarterly to the SURE-P MCH project team. A trend analysis was carried out for each facility in six states, evaluating for the impact of the SURE-P MCH intervention on relevant trends.
