Hub Grant:

Slum and Rural Health Initiative — Training female leaders in 10 rural communities in Northern Nigeria on how to conduct SRMNCAH-N outreach within their local communities and supporting them to establish women’s groups to build a foundation for collaboration around SRMNCAH+N advocacy. The project also includes the co-creation of advocacy materials on SRMNCAH-N using local knowledge and translated into local languages.

African Health Budget Network/Health Reform Foundation — Building the capacity of CSOs and YLOs to actively engage with Nigeria’s SRMNCAH-N multistakeholder country coordination platform and participate in the development and implementation of Nigeria’s Post-COVID-19 RMNCAEH+N Strategy (2023 – 2027). The project includes partner mapping, capacity-building training for CSOs, youth, and media, and the creation of a scorecard for tracking progress on the implementation of the RMNCAEH+N strategy.

Gem Hub Initiative — Conducting a case study on the level of alignment among different national and subnational health initiatives and health priorities in Nigeria with global health initiatives. The project will support evidence-based advocacy around the development of Nigeria’s SRMNCAH-N strategies with a focus on meeting the health needs of women, children, and adolescents.
