Description and results


March 2017 - The conflict between Boko Haram and Nigerian armed forces has devastated communities in north-eastern Nigeria. As access for humanitarian workers to the region improved throughout 2016, the scope of the crisis became more apparent. Overall, the crisis is directly affecting more than 26 million people in Nigeria, of which it is estimated that 14 million will require humanitarian assistance in 2017. Assistance for basic survival and protection is vital for displaced populations, host communities and vulnerable people across the north-east. With GAC’s support, the International Rescue Committee is helping to assist up to 130,000 conflict-affected people in Borno state. Project activities include: (1) supporting up to ten health facilities in providing quality primary health care, benefiting up to 35,000 people; (2) providing mobile clinics to offer effective and scalable treatment for common diseases, benefiting up to 40,800 people; (3) screening up to 102,797 children under the age of five for malnutrition; (4) constructing or rehabilitating water points, benefiting up to 72,500 people; and (5) constructing ventilated improved pit (VIP) latrines, benefiting up to 500 households.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to effective treatment for common diseases; (2) improved nutrition status of children under five years through the prevention, detection and treatment of malnutrition; (3) increased access and use of safe drinking water; and (4) reduced risk of water, sanitation and hygiene-related diseases. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
