2009 – Dissemination Of Findings In Nigeria


One of the most important parts of our work is making sure that findings are fully reported back to local stakeholders – this means all of the people involved in the research and collection of data, but also relevant people and groups who could be interested and/or affected by the results. Dr. Miller and Elizabeth Butrick recently travelled to Nigeria to report on the findings from the NASG research conducted there.


This shows a 60% reduction in deaths and 85% reduction in morbidities (severe disabilities). Not only were local staff in Nigeria pleased to hear the great results from their use of the NASG, but local government officials were also greatly inspired and moved to continue their work bringing the NASG to more and more women in their country through ongoing work with Pathfinder International.
