The objective of this work program is to mobilize a coalition of private sector members and leverage their collective capabilities and assets to contribute to the Saving One Million Live movement, by implementing innovative primary healthcare interventions with our private sector member segments and working groups;
PHN is also developing a private sector led primary healthcare integrated intervention in selected States to revitalize the primary health care system using an innovative approach to address malaria, pneumonia, diarrhea and malnutrition.
The Alliance has convened its private sector members into working groups with strategic public sector partners to implement innovative interventions that contribute to the Saving One Million Lives movemment;

3 INNOVATIVE APPROACHES HAVE BEEN UNVEILED

Telecommunications
PHN has secured working partnerships with the Ministry of Communication Technology, National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, PHN Telecoms members, States, LGAs, GSMA and m-health Alliance; to design and pilot an innovative intervention to leverage phone masts excess power capacity to strengthen neighboring PHC's last mile vaccine cold chain infrastructure.

Financial services
PHN has convened a working group in partnership with NPHCDA, States and PHN financial institutions members to leverage their multi-faceted access points with customers including text alerts, print adverts, bank branches, online portals, customer databases etc to promote additional awareness for the biannual National Maternal Newborn and Child Health weeks as well as other high impact national campaigns.

Pharmaceuticals / FMCG
PHN has secured working partnerships with NPHCDA, PHN Pharma and FMCG members to leverage their supply chain infrastructure to strengthen primary health care systems in target States.
For example, the Alliance Telecomms working group is developing an innovative program to leverage mobile phone masts excess power capacity to strengthen cold chain infrastructure at the last mile

What is DOMtab?

Hundreds of thousands of children under the age of five continue to die each year from vaccine-preventable diseases.
Routine immunization coverage rates have fluctuated as a result of weak cold chain infrastructure at the front lines amongst other factors.
Limited number of routine immunization days in PHCs as a result of inadequate power supply and transportation considerations from more distant State capital/LGA cold chain hubs.

Innovation

Mobile phone technology is spreading rapidly � with the foot print of mobile phone masts (with the full complement of 24 hr power supply and security staff) in close proximity to primary healthcare centers (PHCs).
The additional power capacity from more proximal mobile phone masts can be used to power the refrigeration of viable vaccines at selected mast shelters.

Potential Impact

To save thousands of lives by strengthening the efficiency of vaccine storage and delivery at the last mile.
Increase in the number of routine immunization days in PHCs hence improving the availability and effectiveness of vaccine stock at the last mile.
Reduce wastage and stock out of vaccines at the last mile.
