Press release: changing the course of under-five mortality in Nigeria

Our Partnership for Improved Child Health (PICH) project in Benue State, Nigeria, closed in August 2019. Read our press release to find out what we achieved and how communities have adapted. Every year, hundreds of thousands of children under the age of five years in Nigeria do not live up to their fifth birthday due to preventable childhood illnesses such as malaria, pneumonia, diarrhoea and severe acute malnutrition. Most under-five death occurs in remote, hard to reach communities where caregivers are faced with physical, social and financial barriers to access health services. Christian Aid , through this project, has empowered communities to take ownership of their own health by improving knowledge and health-seeking behaviour, giving hope in despair, and saving children under five who face imminent death due to barriers of access to and uptake of quality health services.  This project was funded by Christian Aid supporters and UK Aid Match from the UK government. 

Sierra Leone: assessment of governance programming methodology

This guidance document provides an introduction to the overall approach for the assessment; an overview of methods used; and issues for consideration when using these or similar methods.  It is based on the consultants’ experience of carrying out the assessment in Kailahun, Sierra Leone over five and a half days in September 2015. The methods section contains an introduction to each method, notes about facilitation, and identification of some benefits of use.    Please note, this document is not intended to be a comprehensive set of guidelines on delivering these methods. It is an accompaniment to the main report, Stand strong: women and politics, Kailahun, Sierra Leone. Both are part of Christian Aid’s 2015 impact assessment on governance programming.
