Integrated Humanitarian Assistance
to Northeast Nigeria III (IHANN III)
Funded by: USAID, Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance | Duration: January 2021- January 2022
The humanitarian situation remains critical in northeast Nigeria, with an estimated 8.7 million people in need of humanitarian assistance and more than 1.9 million internally displaced persons from nearly 365,000 households.
FHI 360’s Integrated Humanitarian Assistance to Northeast Nigeria (IHANN III) project continues the gains of IHANN I and II projects to provide a multisectoral humanitarian response in Borno State to reduce morbidity and mortality and improve the wellbeing of conflict-affected and displaced Nigerians. The project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), ran from January 2021 to January 2022.
IHANN III supports the wellbeing of internally displaced families and host communities by ensuring access to quality services, including:
- Primary health care, reproductive health and health outreach services.
- Psychosocial support services and integrated gender-based violence and child protection support.
- Clean and safe water, improved sanitation facilities and improved hygiene practices.
- Management of activities to improve acute malnutrition and infant and young child feeding in emergencies for pregnant and lactating women and children under five.
In 2021, FHI 360 expanded the IHANN III project to a new location in Bama-Town, Bama LGA, following the temporary suspension of operation in Dikwa due to security challenges.
Our work is a fully integrated package of interventions that will provide comprehensive support, thereby reducing the risks of death and illness and improving the health and safety of displaced individuals in Borno State.
