Government counterparts from state and local government authorities are part of the team supervising and monitoring the home visits.
From November 2018, the Bauchi State government took over the technical and financial management of the home visits programme in the first two wards in Toro LGA.
The Bauchi State government has included a rollout of home visits across the State in its plan for health services. A Technical Group convened by the PHCDA has recommended that home visits in the rollout should follow the model we have developed in Toro LGA, with some added contents of the visits.
Rollout of the home visits program across the state requires a cadre of government officers trained in the management and technical monitoring of the program. The project team provide formal training for government counterparts in training, supervising and monitoring the home visitors; data quality monitoring; and data analysis/interpretation. Training courses are housed in the Bauchi State College of Nursing and Midwifery.
