SCIDaR facilitates transformative community-driven solutions that build vibrant, resilient, and healthy communities.
Vaccine Supply Chain Revamp
SCIDaR worked with Kano state and donor partners to develop and implement a suite of supply chain interventions. On this project, the team was able to deploy weekly vaccine stock performance dashboards at both LGA and ward levels to guide timely vaccine stock replenishment and other logistics decisions. Also, we rolled out a new vaccine distribution system which was streamlined to enable direct delivery of vaccines from state satellites stores to equipped health facilities.
Polio Outbreak Response Africa
The polio disease epidemic hit West and Central Africa in 2004 and in response Africa launched the largest immunization campaigns in the world. With the interventions of donors and the African government, on the 25th of August 2020, after four (4) years without a single case of wild polio, the African region was certified free of wild poliovirus and the decades of extraordinary investment has paid off.
Borno Polio Outbreak Response
The Borno Polio Outbreak Response team supports vaccination in all partially accessible and inaccessible settlements and ensures at least 90% of these settlements are reached by security access teams for vaccination with bOPV. Also, the team supports Borno EOC to consolidate all PEI datasets, use data for action and build the capacity of state staff on the EOC M&E team.
RI Financial Management System Strengthening
SCIDaR led the rollout of a revised financial management system to ensure effective and transparent utilization of routine immunization funds in 6 Nigerian states; Bauchi, Borno, Kaduna, Kano, Sokoto and Yobe States. On this project, we successfully established a direct electronic disbursement system managed by the State to enable prompt receipt of funds by end-users at all levels, supported the States, LGAs & health facilities to establish dedicated bank accounts to enable direct end-user access to RI funds and the internal audit units of State PHC Agencies to validate retired funds and flag irregularities to the leadership team.
