MID YEAR REVIEW : PROGRESS TOWARDS STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES (JANUARY TO JUNE)

Between January and June, the GBV sub sector has made progress of 38% towards achieving its strategic objectives within the HRP, reaching 376,481 individuals out of 1,000,000 targeted. During the reporting period, 180,783 individuals (42,460 girls, 16,610 boys, 94,974 women and 26,659 men) were supported to access specialized services, out of which 14,071 women and girls of reproductive age were provided with critical materials assistance such as dignity kits and wood fuel for cooking among others.

158,887 women, men, girls and boys received Psychological First Aid plus other psychosocial support services, and 1,593 mainly women and girls were supported with a range of skills building and livelihood support services. 248 individuals, mostly women, adolescent girls and children received lifesaving medical care including post rape/sexual assault clinical treatment. 11,454 women, girls and boys at risk of or have survived violence benefitted from existing safety and security measures including 30 female and youth friendly safe spaces in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe; and one safe shelter facility for sexual violence/assault and other GBV survivors in Adamawa state. Key advocacy initiatives have resulted into collaboration with the security sector to organise escorted movements for especially females to collect firewood outside the camp security perimeter.

Overall, although there is huge room for improvements and to perform better. Tremendous progress has been registered towards achievement of targets for indicators contributing to strategic objectives 1 and 2 where implementation data has been available. Strategic objective 3 has registered the least progress because of existing gaps in human resource. The performance of the sub sector may reflect 38% progress towards achievement of the annual target, the realities on ground and interactions with partners reveal that the needs of especially women, adolescent girls, children and a small percentage of boys remain COMPLEX.
