NE/Improving child health in Ibadan primary schools

Description

While most infectious diseases are preventable, they still account for over two thirds of childhood mortality in developing countries such as Nigeria. In Nigeria, the Government (with UNICEF support) has launched a National School Health Policy with a respective action plan for the country, but implementation of the policy has been slow, resulting in most of the schools still lacking basic health services. Within this context the objective of the project is to support the Oyo State in implementing the school health services with a long-term aim to improve the health status of children in primary schools in Ibadan.
