Strengthening HR for SCM in the immunization supply chain in Nigeria through stakeholder engagement

Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa with an estimated population of 176 million people and employs the largest number of health workers on the continent. The availability of human resources is at optimal levels however the human resource capacity remains a challenge in Nigeria’s health sector. National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) leadership has moved ahead in addressing these challenges by engaging international partners, traditional and religious leaders nationwide, and donors to be leaders and change agents in strengthening HR for SCM at all levels. This focus is aimed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the immunization supply chain.
