At baseline (2012) and then follow-up (2013) this TSHIP study sampled 340 households from 19 random locations in each of the 20 Local Government Areas (LGA) of Bauchi State in Northern Nigeria, using the Lot Quality Assurance Sampling (LQAS) technique.  The LGA surveyed were classified high priority with MMR 1540 and IMR 78, requiring intensified efforts for programmatic scale up to accelerate, consolidate and sustain the modest but significant achievements in the continuum of care, if MDGs 4 and 5 are to be achieved by the end of 2015.  Comparative data for FP, immunization, ANC visits, skilled delivery and early initiation of breastfeeding show need for efficiently re-allocating program resurces in low coverage LGAs to improve demand for health services by utilizing community-based health volunteers (CBHV).
