Project Description
The development objective of the Polio Eradication Support Project for Nigeria is to assist the Government of Nigeria, as part of a global polio eradication effort, to achieve and sustain at least 80 percent coverage with oral polio vaccine (OPV) immunization in every state in the country. The project has the following three components: 1.Supply of OPV to national strategic cold stores, 2. Polio Eradication Operations Support, and 3. Routine Immunization (RI) Support. The proposed AF will help finance the costs associated with polio eradication in all the states in Nigeria and the procurement of vaccines for RI for children under 5 years and women of reproductive age. Given that most of the OPV procurement, the polio eradication activities and RI vaccine procurement need to take place in the first half of 2016 (the lead time required to procure and deliver vaccines is at least two months), the AF proposes to apply retroactive financing of 20 percent.
