The Cost and Impact of Introducing Integrated Community Case Management in Nigeria: Studies from Benue and Kebbi States
MSH used USAID’s iCCM Costing and Financing Tool to estimate the costs and impact of iCCM implementation and scale-up in two states of Nigeria: Kebbi and Benue. This study aims to forecast the costs and impact of introducing the iCCM program in Benue and Kebbi states. It is intended to help key institutions such as the Ministry of Health and the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) understand the potential costs and impact of iCCM, and to provide an evidence base for them to advocate with donors for funding to expand services. The analysis covered projections of cases and costs, identification of bottlenecks and estimates of impact measured as mortality reductions.
