We are delighted to share the April 2012 issue of Advancing Health with you. This issue includes interesting articles about the work TSHIP is doing in both Bauchi and Sokoto states. This issue begins with a highlight on the efforts of TBAs in improving immunization coverage with a focus on Sokoto state. It is titled 'Color-coded cards and trust: ingredients increasing immunization coverage in Sokoto state'. Other interesting pieces include: (i) findings of the SBM-R baseline and follow-on assessment and how it has helped to improve quality standards in Bauchi general hospitals, (ii) TSHIP's support to the state health research and ethics committees in both states, (iii) how the emergency transport system established and managed by WDCs is helping to reduce motherhood mortality in Bauchi state, (iv) how organizational capacity building for civil society organizations have culminated in resources leveraged to the tune of $50,000 (non-USAID funds) in Sokoto, and (v) how a revitalized clinic saved the life of Zuwaira in Bauchi state. Other highlights include the establishment of the Bauchi State Drug Management Agency, an initiative that was highly supported by TSHIP as well as a three-way deal (public-private partnership) that gives hope of improved health care services to over 12,000 clients in Sokoto state.
