Nigeria Governors Leadership Immunisation Challenge Grant Award: The Background, the Competition, and Success Stories from the Winner States

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in partnership with the Nigeria Governors’ Forum and National Primary Health Care Development Agency, initiated the Nigeria Governors’ Immunisation Leadership Challenge with the goal of improving political commitment to polio and immunisation outcomes amongst Nigeria State Governors.

The Society for Family Health was selected by the Foundation to manage the Nigeria Governors Leadership Immunisation Challenge Grant Award. Its major role was to support the NGF and winner states to implement the grant funds and ensure successful completion of the selected projects. This publication is a compilation of the background, implementation processes and success stories of the projects implementation in each of the winner states.

SHF had a strong desire for an image-heavy document to provide a first-hand showcase the impact of their work “on the ground” in these communities. They provided a large array of images, which became the focal point of the report. The report was designed as a compilation of case studies of the success stories in these communities.
