Nomadic Health Project (NHP)

Save the Children, with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has partnered with CBCC Africa, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and John Snow Inc (JSI) on the Nomadic Health Project. The four-year (2018-2021) project seeks to increase use of quality Family Planning services among nomadic and semi-nomadic communities in Wajir County (Wajir West, Wajir North and Tarbaj sub-counties) and Mandera County (Mandera North, Banisa and Mandera West sub-counties). The project also engages regional stakeholders in sharing lessons on effective, scalable approaches to increase FP use among nomadic populations. CBCC Africa is implementing the Social and Behavior Change and Communication [SBCC] component of the project, aimed at addressing social norms that hinder access and utilization of quality family planning services in nomadic and semi-nomadic populations. This will enable women of reproductive age to use modern family planning methods to time, space and limit their pregnancies as desired. The project targets Married women non-users, with one or two children, husbands, mothers of married women, female peers, village elders, traditional leaders, religious leaders, service providers (CHV, health worker) and advocacy audiences.
