General context of the project
Since 2009, insurgency and armed organised groups activities have crippled North-eastern Nigeria. Borno State continues to be the most affected, with over 1.3 million internally displaced persons (IDPs).

It includes comprehensive services provision for GBV survivors including specialized case management, individual psychosocial counselling for survivors and individuals showing high levels of distress, group psychosocial support for women and girls, targeted material assistance; Capacity building of specific protection staff responsible for different technical elements of GBV prevention and response, including individual case management of GBV cases, MHPSS, PFA and safe and confidential referral to specialized services, mobile case management and PSS; Security audits, FDGs and regular in depth sector assessments; Including men and boys in promoting protection and GBV prevention.
