Final evaluation of the Lahiya Yara child survival project in Niger

05 August 2015

In the most recent UNICEF State of the World’s Children report Niger ranks tenth in the world for number of child deaths. Under-five mortality rates are 114 per 1000 births, with malaria, malnutrition, pneumonia and diarrheal disease accounting for many of these deaths.

Concern’s goal is to achieve a sustained reduction in childhood mortality in Niger’s Tahoua Region. For this project, activities fell into two main categories: strengthening the health care system at the facility level and investing in intensive community-level activities to promote sustained behavioural change and integrated community case management of malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea. The project also intended to develop community engagement and ownership as a means to embed improved practices and stewardship for health care.
