|Warm greetings from The Communication Initiative to participants in the Drum Beat and Soul Beat Africa networks.
Under the auspices of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) of Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Health, The CI coordinated a team (USAID, MCSP, Dr Seb Taylor, PHSS) that undertook research designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the underlying family- and community-based factors that influence Nigerians’ perspectives on immunization. The research took place the northern states of Bauchi, Kano and Sokoto.
Though this research focused on polio vaccination and routine immunisation (RI), the results offer insight into how household dynamics work across and affect a range of health and development issues.
