On February 10 the Health Research Program hosted a webinar on the Nigeria 2019 Verbal and Social Autopsy (VASA) study of under-five mortality. The VASA study was implemented by the National Population Commission (NPC), in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), with technical support from the USAID Coordinating Implementation Research to Communicate Learning and Evidence (CIRCLE) project. The study was officially completed and disseminated by NPC and FMOH in November 2020, at both national and regional levels, with high media coverage. The purpose of this webinar was to share the process that resulted in high stakeholder ownership of the study, key findings, and recommendations for action.
