Integrated Humanitarian Assistance
to Northeast Nigeria II (IHANN II)
Funded by: USAID, Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance | Duration: April 2013 – December 2020
Considering the scope of the ongoing Northeast emergency in Nigeria and evolving situation, FHI 360 recognizes the importance of scaling up IHANN intervention, particularly in response to recent infectious disease outbreaks, including cholera, Hepatitis-E, and COVID-19, and tailored the activities to address additional gaps.
Through the Integrated Humanitarian Assistance to Northeast Nigeria (IHANN II) project – funded by U.S. Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (formerly OFDA) between April 2019 to December 2020, FHI 360 contributed to reducing morbidity and mortality and improving the wellbeing of conflict-affected and displaced Nigerians in four affected LGAs across Borno State, namely Dikwa, Ngala, Mobbar-Damasak, and Bama-Banki. The project targeted 235,796 and impacted more than 300,000 IDPs. IHANN II delivered targeted interventions designed to meet the most pressing needs of IDPs through the provision of primary and reproductive healthcare, Nutrition, gender-based violence (GBV) and child protection, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services. The project’s four thematic areas aim to achieve the following objectives:
- Improve access to Primary health care, reproductive health, and health outreach services in conflict-affected and displaced communities.
- Improve the well-being of vulnerable individuals through increased access to Psychosocial support services and integrated gender-based violence and child protection support.
- Ensure the well-being of IDPs and host communities through access to clean and safe water, improved sanitation facilities, and improved hygiene practices.
- Improve the nutritional status of the most vulnerable groups through improved management of acute malnutrition and infant and young child feeding in emergencies for pregnant and lactating women and children under age five in both the IDP and the host community populations.
