Nigeria:CCCCM Sector Operational Guidance for the COVID-19 Response in North-East Nigeria - 3 April 2020 [EN]

The on-going crisis in Northeast Nigeria that has affected over 7.7 million people and displaced over  2,035,232 individuals in six main states with Borno, Yobe and Adamawa recording the highest Internally displaced persons, is yet again being threatened by a global health Pandemic and outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) which has been declared in Nigeria with emergency mode characteristics. As such, the humanitarian community is developing relevant guidelines on prevention and response procedures for the pandemic. The already overwhelming humanitarian needs, especially in Borno state where the majority of the IDPs are located, would indeed strain the humanitarian responses. Therefore, In this regard, the CCCM, Shelter and NFI sector anticipates that camp management and related activities will equally be challenging to execute.

The CCCM Technical Working Group has since adopted the recommendations of the IASC guidelines for COVID-19 outbreak readiness and response in camp and camp-like settings, UN Nigeria recommended guidelines on COVID, WHO COVID-19 guidelines and the federal government guidance’s on COVID-19 in addition to the Shelter/NFI/CCCM sector-specific recommendations.  As such a tailored preparedness, preventive and response plan will be implemented to ensure continuity of essential lifesaving humanitarian assistance, as well as complement efforts by the health sector to cover COVID-19, Lasa fever and cholera outbreak preparedness, response and implementation.
