ACHIEVE Nigeria project director
Pact has worked for more than a decade in Nigeria, a complex country that is home to more people than any other African nation.
With funding partners that have included USAID, Chevron and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Pact uses local solutions and builds the capacity of Nigerian organizations to create lasting impact.
Currently, Pact is part of a global effort to improve maternal, newborn and child health, family planning and reproductive health, including in Nigeria. We are strengthening referral systems, building the capacity of local entities and organizations to better plan, prepare, manage and finance their programs, and strengthening the strategic planning and management capacity of the national government to improve health services.
Pact and its partners are also working to reach and sustain HIV epidemic control among pregnant and breastfeeding women, adolescents, infants and children in Nigeria through the ACHIEVE project.
Our past work in Nigeria has included governance programming that promoted democracy, fought corruption and forged partnerships between government and civil society, resulting in the passage of significant national good governance legislation, including Nigeria's landmark Freedom of Information Act in 2011. We recently successfully closed an effort to stem violent conflict between nomadic livestock herders and indigenous farmers in Nigeria's Taraba State.
