(S)he will be able and willing to travel and work extensively for several weeks within Northeast Nigeria, including in insecure and/or conflict-affected areas.

The consultant will be deployed to Borno and/or Adamawa States to gather qualitative and quantitative information about existing mental health and social service infrastructure, the conditions and social service needs of GBV survivors in the area, and their interest and ability to access services.

Organizational Background:
Heartland Alliance International (HAI) is the newest and fastest growing part of Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights, a family of organizations that has been leading anti-poverty and social justice work in the United States for more than 125 years.

HAI is making significant investments in its programming in the fields of trauma-informed mental health care and access to justice for marginalized populations. HAI is also an industry leader in ensuring access to stigma-free health care. HAI's programs deliver high quality prevention and treatment services, and take action in response to human rights violations. HAI does this while building the capacity of local providers.

About the Project:
With support from the U.S. Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, HAI is implementing Protect, Shelter, and Heal, a two year project to improve comprehensive services for survivors of trafficking in Northeast Nigeria. This innovative project builds on HAI’s extensive experience providing integrated services for survivors of trafficking, by developing technical training models that can be adopted and replicated to contexts in other countries.
