Description

Socializing Evidence for Participatory Action (SEPA): Promoting local sustainability of universal home visits in Bauchi State, Nigeria

The project shares the methods of the home visits and evidence of their impact with discussion groups in communities, at ward level and at Local Government Authority (LGA) level, documenting the discussions about the results, the views of the participants about how to support sustainability locally, and actions they propose to support the efforts of individual visited households to protect maternal and child health. Contact with the groups after a month documents actions taken or planned. We developed remote meeting methods because of COVID restrictions and conducted additional meetings to seek feedback from community groups that helped to develop communication materials about child spacing.
