Nigeria Reproductive Health, Child Health, and Education Household, School, and Health Facility


This executive summary reports on the findings from the 2007 Nigeria reproductive health, child health, and education household, school, and health facility midline surveys (three surveys in total). Additional results from the surveys are contained in a separate report: Nigeria Reproductive Health, Child Health and Education Midline Household Survey, 2007; Nigeria Midline Health Facility Survey, 2007; and Nigeria Midline Primary School Headmaster and Teacher Survey, 2007. The surveys provide midline evaluation data for the Community Participation for Action in the Social Sectors (COMPASS) Project and for the U.S. Agency for International Development mission in Nigeria (USAID/Nigeria). The surveys were implemented in 51 local government areas (LGAs) in the states of Bauchi, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Kano, Lagos, and Nasarawa where the COMPASS Project is being implemented. The purpose of the COMPASS Project is to enhance health services, and promote child survival and improved literacy. The core idea behind COMPASS is to integrate the health, child survival, and education sectors through the promotion of community coalitions. The COMPASS Project will be evaluated using three waves of data collection. The following surveys were implemented at baseline in 2005, and again at mid-term in 2007: a household survey on reproductive health, child health and education; a health facility survey; and a primary school headmaster and teacher survey. A final round of surveys will be conducted at the end of the project in 2009. (excerpt) - See more at:
