FHI 360‘s work in Nigeria addresses a broad range of human development challenges. In collaboration with international and local partners, we combat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria; expand access to reproductive health; strengthen health care delivery systems; increase food security; and improve education for children.
In partnership with the Government of Nigeria, we build local capacity for the delivery of sustainable, high-quality, comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support services. In addition to service interventions, FHI 360 has built the capacity of local organizations to implement strategic behavior change communication with the aim of preventing new HIV infections, reducing HIV prevalence among high-risk groups and stabilizing HIV prevalence within the general population.
To increase efficiency and improve health outcomes, we help health systems integrate HIV, tuberculosis and family planning services. FHI 360 also collaborates with in-country partners to implement and scale up proven malaria-control methods, while strengthening the management of malaria programs at national, state and local levels.
To ensure food security, FHI 360 provides rapid technical assistance through programs that use innovative solutions to improve the ability of vulnerable households to access adequate and nutritious food.
We also work to improve the quality and relevance of education for orphans and vulnerable children, especially girls, in junior and senior secondary schools. In particular, we are working to build support for girls’ education through community engagement around challenges facing girls and their families.
We are pleased to announce Inside Nigeria, a new online community designed to bring you inside FHI 360’s work and impact in Nigeria and keep you informed on relevant human development news. We invite you to learn more and engage in the dialogue through our blog, Facebook and Twitter pages.
