Case study: Strengthening health care in Nigeria by convening a state-level community of practice

May 16, 2018

Pact created a community of practice, or COP, among Nigerian state-level health care leaders in 2014 after seeing a need for peer-to-peer interaction among Nigerian states engaged in the federal government's Primary Health Care Under One Roof initiative to further its mission of improving maternal and child health in the country. Through the COP platform, states unused to collaborating established working relationships, learned from each other, got expert health care information and leveraged their influence to gain additional resources. This case study provides a retrospective analysis of the COP.
