Reaching More Women and Children with Health Services in Bauchi


Maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) weeks are observed in Nigeria every six months. This infographic presents the USAID Targeted States High Impact Project (TSHIP) and the Bauchi State Ministry of Health progress in providing better MNCH services. For example, vitamin A coverage in children under 5 years old increased from 69% in 2010 to 85% in 2014.

TSHIP forged a public-private partnership between the Bauchi MOH and Vitamin Angels, a U.S.-based nonprofit that contributed enough vitamin A capsules to supplement 2 million children. With TSHIP’s support, Bauchi State has also increased the number of service delivery points used during MNCH week from two to three health facilities per ward and outreach visits have been introduced in communities that have no functional health facilities. MNCH weeks are providing more women and children in Bauchi with comprehensive health services. JSI/TSHIP, 2015.
