Overview of position:

  • The nutrition situation in the northeast is worsening. As part of the nutrition response, there is a need to have Facilitators on ground. The Facilitators monitor day to day activity implementation, provide technical support, monitor & supervise utilization of supplies (ensuring no misuse, etc.), conduct on the job mentoring for the service providers & ensure adherence to the admission & treatment protocols. In the light of our accountability to the donors & to the affected population, the presence of the Facilitators ensures effective program implementation with use of life saving resources & achievement of the desired results for vulnerable women & children.
  • The nutrition section had 5 State Facilitators & 28 LGA Facilitators making the total of 33 Facilitators in BAY states. 4 LGA Facilitators from Bama, Mobbar, Bade & Konduga resigned between September 2022 to January 2023. This created a gap in the 4 most critical LGAs where nutrition services are being delivered. As services in these 4 LGAs are being delivered by the government & local NGO partners they require very close monitoring & technical guidance & support. The gap created by the absence of the LGA Facilitators is affecting program delivery in the 4 LGAs as there are no fixed government staff dedicated for nutrition program.
