Achieving Health Nigeria Initiative (AHNi) is a non-profit organization that promotes socio-economic development by supporting global health and economic initiatives in Nigeria. It was established as an affiliate of the Family Health International (FHI 360) to sustain FHI 360’s achievements in strengthening indigenous organizational capacity in Nigeria. AHNi has progressed into an allied organization to FHI 360 since 2019. AHNi was registered as an organization in Nigeria in 2009 with its headquarter in Abuja, and presence in the six geopolitical regions of Nigeria. It aims to provide technical assistance to the government and people of Nigeria in the implementation of public health and development programs. AHNi implements projects in HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, health systems strengthening, sexual and reproductive health/family planning and humanitarian projects for internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugees in protection, health, and nutrition. AHNi also offers technical assistance and service delivery in integrated maternal, neonatal and child health (IMNCH), monitoring and evaluation (M&E), laboratory support, behavior change communication (BCC), policy and legislation, gender/key populations, public-private partnership (PPP), and grants management.
Adolescents & Young Persons (AYPs) especially Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) have vulnerabilities for HIV in Nigeria that are strongly linked with gender inequalities and harmful practices. AGYW are also more likely to engage in risky sexual behaviors compared with older females. As such, AGYW are at comparably higher risks of HIV and appropriate interventions need to be targeted at them.
The goal of the AGYW intervention is to reduce the HIV risk and lower the HIV incidence among adolescent girls and young women aged 10-24 years. The vocational skills and provision of start-up grant aims to provide economic empowerment opportunities to indigent Adolescent Girls and Young Women in Anambra state.
Hence, the consultants will support the implementation of AGYW intervention and vocational training for pre-selected indigent AGYW in the state. This is intended to empower vulnerable AGYW with income generating skills that will enable them to take decisions that does not pre-dispose them to risky sexual behaviours.
