MSF-CH started its activities in Nigeria in July 2016 in response to the mass influx of IDPs in Borno State. Operations were extended from Banki to Ngala and Rann at the beginning of 2017; with these three interventions initially being managed from Cameroon.
MSF worked in 2 main projects (Ngala and Rann) and does surveillance or seasonal activities in Banki. Coordination is based in Maiduguri, with an administrative and supply back base in Abuja, the country capital. MSF does primary and secondary health care, community-based interventions, and WASH activities.
In 2018, MSF intervention has mainly been focused on two main projects Ngala (primary and secondary health care) and Rann (PHC, community approach), though a small presence has been kept in Banki. Due to continuous security incidents in Rann, the project was halted in January 2019. From July to October, MSF will implement SMC activities in all the above mentioned locations, which were already successfully conducted in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
