NPHD provided management and technically supported the CHAI team in Niger State to roll out cascaded trainings of health providers across 10 secondary health facilities. The training focused on appropriate practices for the management of childhood pneumonia, with the aim of shifting healthcare provider behaviour towards the use of pulse oximetry, oxygen therapy and Amoxicillin DT for the diagnosis and treatment of pneumonia.

The project was successfully implemented. We recruited the trainers and managed 10 training sessions in Minna, Agaie, N/Bussa and T/Magajiya and successfully trained 178 health workers, 38 doctors and pharmacists, and 140 nurses, midwives and CHEWs. The assignment was carried out in two months.
