20 Update on the Country Operational Plan By Dr Tunde Segun Country Director

21 The Commission on Information and Accountability (COIA) for Women’s and Children’s Health sets the international architecture through which E4A will be implemented across each country, including in Nigeria Introduction

22 Introduction contd. E4A’s mandate to reduce maternal and newborn mortality by galvanising greater action and responses through more effective use of MNH evidence, better advocacy, and strengthened accountability mechanisms, is directly aligned with the overall aim of COIA, to save the lives of women and children through monitoring, reviewing, and acting, and linking accountability of resources to results, outcomes, and impact. Introduction contd.

23 Structure of the COP Given the common goals and objectives, the proposed activities for E4A in Nigeria, have been developed using the COIA work plan The COP provides an overview of activities for year one, with many activities overlapping into year two and beyond. Structure of the COP

24 Structure of the COP contd. There are a number of avenues at the Federal and State level through which E4A initiatives, learnings, and progress can be shared and guidance provided including the the Core Technical Committee (CTC) of IMNCH, the National Reproductive Health Working Group (NRHWG), Partnership for the Promotion of Maternal and Child Health (PPMNCH) among other working groups Activities

25 While E4A activities have been framed under each of the COIA areas, they are not bound by them In addition, the activities have been organised according to elements within the Theory of Change on evidence, advocacy, and accountability, and are reflective, and directly supportive, of initiatives under Nigeria’s National Strategic Health Development Plan (NSHDP) Activities

26 The evidence-focused activities for E4A have been structured around the following COIA areas: – 2.1 (Monitoring of 11 Core Results Indicators) – 2.2 (Strengthening Registration of Birth and Deaths) – 2.3 (Quality of Care Assessments) – 2.4 (Tracking of Resources) – 2.5 (Digital Health Strategy) Evidence activities

27 Evidence activities contd. – 2.6 (Annual Review and Action) – 5.0 (Analysis and Reporting on Results) – 6.0 (Analysis and Reporting on Resources) – 7.0 (Dissemination, Interpretation, and Use of Data) – 8.0 (Global Digital Health Strategy) Evidence activities contd.

28 Advocacy activities As with the evidence activities, those around advocacy have been articulated under the following COIA areas: – 2.7 (Advocacy) – 4.0 (Advocacy and Outreach) – 3.0. (Galvanising Commitment) Advocacy activities

29 Accountability activities Under the COIA work plan, only one key area has been defined for accountability work. Although all E4A-supported accountability efforts in Nigeria are clustered within this COIA area, they are integrally linked to and based on evidence and advocacy efforts. – 1.0 (Country Plans to Augment Accountability) Accountability activities
