The Strengthening Advocacy for Immunization through Data (SAID) project is an endeavor of The International Vaccine Access Center (IVAC). The project aims to strengthen advocacy for immunization by improving advocates’ awareness and use of evidence that supports investments in routine immunization. IVAC has commissioned Direct Consulting and Logistics (DCL) to conduct a survey to identify what data is needed for immunization advocacy in Nigeria .
This is part of a broader effort to determine the data needs of global and national advocates, which in turn, will inform the final edits to a compendium of evidence developed by the SAID team. The SAID compendium synthesizes available evidence on the health, economic and social value of vaccines into an online resource for immunization advocates that will provide advocates with new tools and knowledge to communicate the value of vaccines.
The project effort in Nigeria started in 2016 with consultations with health advocates. To date the team has had two focus group discussions and two group discussions with a total of 26 individuals from 18 organizations.
Advocates consulted felt the following:
