This research is part of a multi-country study (Nigeria and Liberia) providing an evaluation of adherence by field teams to the COVID-19 related SOPs established to support MDAs for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). The component in Nigeria is supported by Sightsavers.
The results will provide novel insight into:
Bringing perspectives from CDDs, community leaders and community members will help identify areas for continuous improvement in the content, training, and/or communication of the SOPs themselves or programme related issues.
Understanding whether the community feels safe with the revised guidelines or if they feel additional precautions are necessary is paramount to achieving high levels of coverage and uptake.
