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.

New grant for humanitarian response in northeast Nigeria


FHI 360 has received a new grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance to deliver urgently needed humanitarian assistance in northeast Nigeria.

There are nearly 7 million people in northeast Nigeria who have felt the impact of the violent insurgencies of Boko Haram. FHI 360’s work will focus on Borno State, where there are approximately 1.3 million internally displaced persons.

Reading instruction in mother tongue inspires entire communities in Nigeria

Nigeria has 510 living indigenous languages, and more languages are spoken within its borders than in any other African country. This linguistic diversity represents a rich cultural heritage, but it also poses challenges for education.

Bringing clean water to internally displaced people in northeast Nigeria

The humanitarian crisis in northeast Nigeria has displaced 1.4 million people in Borno State alone. To help alleviate the most immediate needs of the region, FHI 360’s Integrated Humanitarian Assistance to Northeast Nigeria project is delivering lifesaving services at the camps where internally displaced persons live in the Borno State areas of Dikwa and Ngala. Priority interventions are focused on improving water, sanitation and hygiene to address health conditions at these camps. The project is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) through its Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance.
