Assessment of Injection Safety in Selected Local Government Areas in Five States in Nigeria
Continuing work from the Making Medical Injections Safer project, USAID/Nigeria asked AIDSTAR-One to provide injection safety technical assistance to the government of Nigeria and PEPFAR implementing partners. AIDSTAR-One conducted this follow-up assessment of injection safety in five USAID priority states: Bauchi, Benue, Cross River, Lagos, and Sokoto. Using an adaptation of the Revised Injection Safety Assessment Tool (Tool C-Revised) developed by the World Health Organization, AIDSTAR-One's assessment covered all injection and blood-drawing procedures in 80 public sector health care settings and laboratories. Findings from this study will be used to set priorities for project interventions in public sector health care settings and laboratories across the five states.
