  • Plan International was founded over 75 years ago with a mission to promote and protect the rights of children.

    The organisation was set up by British journalist John Langdon-Davies and refugee worker Eric Muggeridge in 1937, with the original aim to provide food, accommodation and education to children whose lives had been disrupted by the Spanish Civil War.

    Langdon-Davies conceived the idea of a personal relationship between a child and a sponsor – a model that puts the child at the centre, and remains the core of what we do.

    ANNEX 1: PROJECT SUMMARY

    Project Subject Bauchi Opportunities for Responsive Neonatal and Maternal Health (BORN) Project Background The Bauchi Opportunities for Responsive Neonatal and Maternal Health (BORN) project is four and a half years (February 2016-June 2020) gender-transformative project funded by Global Affairs Canada with a total value of CAD 13,786,000(Global Affairs Canada CAD 12,200,000; Plan International Canada cash/in-kind CAD 1,586,000). The project is expected to ultimately contribute to the reduction of maternal and neonatal mortality in 10 Local Government Areas (LGAs) among marginalized and vulnerable women and newborns. Its intermediate outcomes are: improved utilization of maternal, neonatal and family planning services by women of reproductive age (WRA) including adolescent girls, newborns, and male community members; improved quality of maternal, neonatal and family planning services for WRA including adolescent girls, newborns and male community members; and, improved quality of local health governance systems to ensure high quality, gender responsive, adolescent friendly and results-oriented maternal and
    neonatal health, and sexual and reproductive health (MNH/SRH) services. Plan International Canada will implement BORN in partnership with Plan International Nigeria, the Federal and State Ministries of Health Ministries of Women’s Affairs, and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) (Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria
    (PPFN) and Community initiative for the Promotion of Health and Education Sectors (CIPHRESS)). BORN is aligned with the UN’s Every Woman Every Child Global Strategy on Women’s, Children’s and Adolescent’s Health, and will help drive progress towards reaching Sustainable Development Goals 3 and 5.This project will
    respond to health needs identified by the2013 National Demographic Health Survey (NDHS) situational analysis of Bauchi State, which reported that only 16% of births
    are attended by a skilled birth attendant, access to postnatal care remains low as 84% of newborns receive no post-natal care; and Neonatal Mortality Rate (NNMR) stands
    at 43/1000 live births in comparison to national level of 37/1000 live births.
    Furthermore, only 2.1% of WRA utilize modern family planning methods, with unmet needs for FP at 16%. In addition, 48% of adolescent girls aged 15 -19 years old have
    begun childbearing in Bauchi. There are also considerable gender inequalities contributing to this context, as women and adolescent girls have little opportunity for decision making at the household level, poor access to health information and
    services, and local health services are neither gender responsive nor adolescent
    friendly
    Overall Project
    Objectives

    • The goal of the BORN project is to "contribute to the reduction of maternal and neonatal mortality in targeted regions among the most marginalised and vulnerable
    • women and newborns". BORN has the following Intermediate Outcomes; please note these Intermediate Outcomes have been modified to include a greater focus on SRHR
    • (with an emphasis on adolescents), than what was included in the original proposal:
    • 1100 (Demand):Improved utilization of basic and targeted 1 maternal and neonatal health (MNH)/Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) 2 services among WRA 3 , and male community members
    • 1200 (Supply): Improved quality of maternal, neonatal and sexual and reproductive health services including family planning, for WRA, newborns and male community members
    • 1300 (Governance): Improved local health governance systems ensure high quality, gender responsive and result oriented maternal and neonatal health (MNH)/Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) services
