End date
Project description
The Nigeria State Health Investment Project  (NSHIP) aims to address two key challenges encountered in the current Nigeria portfolio (i) How to enhance the focus on results; and (ii) How to shift the Bank’s strategic focus to a few states in order to demonstrate improved health outcomes. The project will:  (i) test the effectiveness of results based management tools through programmatic financing linked to a set of disbursement linked indicators (DLIs) at state and local government level and Performance-Based Financing (PBF) for health facilities; (ii) build social accountability through community management of health facilities and performance measurement of health outputs and (iii) invest in strengthening monitoring and evaluation (M&E) mechanisms. These pilot innovations will be carefully evaluated using rigorous methodologies and implemented at a sustainable level of expenditure. Lessons learned from these large scale pilots will provide the basis for quickly scaling up successful interventions. The project will be implemented in three states (Adamawa, Nasarawa and Ondo).
