National Routine Immunization Coverage Surveys (2003 & 2006)

The National Immunization Coverage Survey is one of the biggest field assessments in Nigeria. It is a household-based survey that employs the WHO cluster sampling methodology with modifications in data collection tools and is aimed at providing the required database on immunization. This is in turn is used to direct programmatic action towards improving routine immunization in Nigeria.

NICS 2006: Hanovia led a consortium of 3 firms in the execution of NICS. This assignment included:

  • coordinating all survey activities ranging from the survey design,
  • field survey management, data collection, data analysis, mapping, and report writing, and
  • financial management support in all the 36 states including the FCT.

NICS 2003: Hanovia was one of the 5 firms involved in the NICS 2003 survey which was conducted in all 36 states including the FCT, leading the field survey management process and participating actively in survey design, data collection, data analysis, mapping, report writing and financial management.

Bayelsa State Immunization Coverage Survey (2006): Hanovia carried out the immunization coverage survey in 32 randomly selected communities in the 8 LGAs of the Bayelsa State using the WHO cluster sampling method. The coverage survey was done to assess the knowledge and practice of immunization by mothers and pregnant women, determine the immunization coverage of children 0-23 months by antigens, identify reasons for poor immunization coverage and identify resource availability and accessibility in the state. The results of the survey were meant to be used to evaluate the status of routine immunization coverage and obtain adequate information for planning and resource allocation.

Other Work with NPHCDA: Hanovia has been involved in the design and/or implementation of a number of projects aimed at restructuring NPHCDA, they include;

  • DFID/ Design of Project for the Revitalization of Routine Immunization in Northern Nigeria sponsored Institutional Development of NPHCDA (2008) that led to the PRINN-MNCH Project
  • Preparation of Proposal for Partnership between the Foundation of the First Lady of Nigeria and NPHCDA (2008)
  • DFID/PATHS sponsored Proposal for development of Strategic Plan of Action for NPHCDA (2007)
  • Team building for NPI-NPHCDA integration process (2007)
  • Technical assistance for exploring options for merging the functions of
