FHI360 is a non-profit human development organization dedicated to improving lives in lasting ways by advancing integrated, locally driven solutions. Our staff includes experts in Health, Education, Nutrition, Environment, Economic Development, Civil Society, Gender, Youth, Research and Technology- creating a unique mix of capabilities to address today’s interrelated development challenges. FHI 360 serves more than 60 countries, all 50 U.S. states and all U.S. territories.
The Integrated Health for Refuges and Vulnerable Populations is a one-year project. The project will be implemented by FHI 360 with support from Bureau of Population Refugees and Migration (BPRM) to strengthen the capacity of two primary health centers (PHCs) located in Boki and Etung LGAs in Cross River State to improve health service delivery through training of health care workers, CHEWs and community volunteers to conduct community outreach and sensitization that address gaps in health seeking behavior. The project will support PHCs with medical commodities provision, emergency preparedness for disease outbreaks, namely cholera and AWD, in refugee settlements and host communities through emergency preparedness training, prepositioned stocks and materials. In addition, the project will provide sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services for refugees in the identified two facilities through coordinated supportive supervision and mentoring of state primary health care development agency staff in the two local governments. Service provision in the PHCs will be gender and disability inclusive and will support the Cross River State health agencies to provide integrated primary health care services including but not limited to sexual/reproductive health, immunization, management of communicable disease and referral to secondary care by providing technical assistance to government systems and structures to strengthen quality preventive and curative health services for refugees in host communities in Cross River state. The project will collaborate with the State Primary Health Care Development Agency (SPHCDA), local government health authorities, health supervisors, community and settlement leadership to foster ownership and sustainability.
Northeast Nigeria is currently facing a growing humanitarian crisis with a vast number of Internally Displaced Persons in need of emergency assistance. These IDPs are living among host communities, lacking access to livelihoods and resources, ultimately leading to unprecedented levels of malnutrition and food insecurity. FHI 360 has been working in Nigeria for over 30 years and is now expanding activities in Borno state to respond to the IDP crisis through the Integrated Humanitarian Assistance in Northern Nigeria II (IHANN 2).
Addressing Education in Northeast Nigeria (AENN) is a 3-year project funded by USAID. It aims to address the immediate education needs of 302,500 children and youth in 225 communities through new non-formal and safer formal education, while laying a foundation for sustainable, conflict-sensitive improvement of education systems at the community and government levels. The project intends to ensure children and adolescents in Northeast Nigeria can equitably access certified high-quality basic education opportunities, to benefit communities by increasing skills and overall well-being, and to build a foundation for long-term peace building in the region. FHI 360 has been working in Nigeria for over 30 years and is now expanding activities in Borno state to respond to the crisis.
