The project aims to support Nigeria’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic by ensuring optimum care of the confirmed cases, containing further spread of the outbreak, and establishing a pathway for rapid recovery and resilience. The project aligns with and supports the rapid implementation of the Government of Nigeria’s national COVID-19 multi-sectoral pandemic response plan, and enables a coordinated approach for the international community and United Nations’ (UN) agencies to provide targeted and coordinated support. Project activities include: (1) increasing access for health facilities to critical medical supplies such as personal protective equipment (PPE), testing kits, and treatment facility materials; (2) supporting vulnerable households with cash transfers and livelihoods opportunities; (3) raising awareness on sexual and gender-based violence prevention; (4) providing support to health facilities, including for the continuation of reproductive and maternal health care; and (5) strengthening the coordinated COVID-19 response plan of the states and federal government.
