The training was conducted for the health workers in the intervention sites to improve the quality of their summarization and communication of vaccination data with laypersons. The cadres of health workers were the Senior Community Health Extension Workers and Community Health Extension Workers. A one-day training session on data summarization and presentation using infographic aid was held in one of the Health Centres in each intervention LGA. The participants were the health workers in charge of the Health Centres from the three Wards included in the study, the Ward Focal Person, the Local Immunisation Officer, the Monitoring and Evaluation Officer, and the Cold Chain Officer. The training lasted for three hours. Data from the immunisation registers generated from routine services in health facilities were analysed and presented on a dashboard. The dashboard was a portable 60 by 70 cm plastic panel with stick-on plaques for ease of conveyance to meetings outside the health facility. The health workers used this to share data with the TRLs at Council of Chiefs’ meetings and the ward development committee meetings. Data displayed on the dashboard included monthly RI uptake and dropouts on the Pentavalent 3 vaccine. Hands-on training was also conducted for the health workers on keeping a defaulters’ register following a report from them that they did not have a means of identifying children that had dropped out of immunisation. This training was delivered on the fifth month of the intervention. They were also trained on the management of adverse effects of vaccination. No training was conducted for health workers in the control sites.
