Report on the in-clinic research of the CPCD within participating clinics in Nigeria in the Health Insurance Fund project in Nigeria from 2007 till 2010

This report provides an overview of the trends in enrollment and health care utilization in the Hygeia
Community Health Program among the Lagos Market Women and in Kwara State (Kwara North and Kwara
Central), Nigeria, from the start of the program in the beginning of 2007 up to the third quarter of 2010.

This paper provides an updated analysis of the enrollment and health care utilization data from the Hygeia Community Health Program (HCHP). The previous analysis used data obtained during the first 12 months after the start of HCHP in Nigeria. This analysis includes data from the end of 2007 up to September 2010. The AMC Center for Poverty-related Communicable Diseases (AMC-CPCD) is contracted by the Health Insurance Fund (HIF) to conduct independent operational research within the HIF program. The main objectives of the research of the AMC-CPCD are to quantify and qualify the impact of the HIF program intervention. Focus of the research is on the quality of the health care provided by the participating clinics and the benefits of the HIF program on the health of the participating populations. A secondary objective is to provide the HIF with independent feedback and recommendations on how to improve the HIF project with respect to both medical and organizational aspects. To this end AMC-CPCD will produce yearly reports with recommendations.
