In the Northeast, over 3.5 million children are believed to have had malnutrition screenings, while there are roughly over 5 million malnourished children nationwide.

Nigeria and the sub-Saharan region of Africa are currently concerned about the issue of food security. People affected by this insurgency still lack access to quality health care and nutrition, despite the fact that farmer/herder conflicts in the North Central and banditry in the Northwest continue to cripple agricultural activities in these regions, making it extremely difficult for the local population to provide for their basic needs.



Approach

Every year, many people, women and children inclusive, die from preventable causes in areas affected by violent conflict and natural disasters. Rise to Inspire Africa Initiative helps those who are experiencing conflict and disaster to reduce their risk of falling ill and receive treatment when they do get sick.

Empowerment
Empowering community health workers to deliver treatment for malnutrition and other leading causes of child death by developing transformative strategies for treating malnourished children, particularly in the conflict areas.
Accessibility
Ensuring that women and girls have access to reproductive health services by supporting skilled health workers and increasing access to family planning for women in crisis zones, including long-acting methods.
Support
Helping people advocate for themselves, access insurance, find medical help and receive the right care while ensuring that people can manage long-term health conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes.
