March 2019 – The conflict between Boko Haram and Nigerian armed forces has been ongoing for over 10 years. Across the three affected states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, approximately 7.1 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in 2019 out of the total population of 13.4 million. Assistance for basic survival and protection is vital for displaced populations, host communities and vulnerable people across north-eastern Nigeria, especially in Borno State, the epicenter of the crisis. With GAC’s support, the International Rescue Committee is helping to assist up to 145,393 conflict-affected people in the Borno state. Project activities include: (1) providing sexual and reproductive health services, benefitting up to 6,293 women and girls; (2) supporting up to five health facilities in providing quality primary health care, benefiting up to 18,000 people; (3) providing mobile clinics to offer effective and scalable treatment for common diseases, benefiting up to 45,000 people; (4) screening and treating up to 3,736 children under the age of five for severe malnutrition; and (5) constructing or rehabilitating water points, ventilated improved pit (VIP) latrines, as well as household latrines, benefiting up to 16,000 people.
