NURHI Phase 1 (2009 – 2015)
Phase 1 of NURHI was implemented in six cities (Federal Capital Territory, Ibadan, Ilorin, Kaduna, Benin and Zaria). According to the 2013 Nigeria Demographic and Health Survey, it contributed to significant increases in contraceptive prevalence in these cities.
Creation, collection, and dissemination of knowledge was fundamental to the work of NURHI 2. Throughout the project, NURHI 2 ensured that information, research, tools, creative materials, and learnings were captured, shared, and archived in accessible and easy-to-use formats. This made scale-up and adaptation to new geographies easier.
The project’s knowledge management strategy built on principles derived from common practices in the field. Acknowledging that most of its organizational information was tacit, stored in the minds of its employees and consultants, and that the public was the ultimate priority and target of any knowledge platform, NURHI 2 designed and implemented a variety of platforms and approaches targeting these audiences. Staff and partners followed guidelines to capture stories about implementation, success stories, testimonies, and learnings.
NURHI 2 also worked with the Federal Ministry of Health to develop Knowledge Management Guidelines for Health Promotion.
