Banyan Global leads the five-year, $19 million United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Health Workforce Management (HWM) Activity in Nigeria. The HWM Activity works in Bauchi, Sokoto, Kebbi, and Ebonyi States as well as the Federal Capital Territory. The HWM purpose is to establish a cost‐effective, well-trained, and motivated health workforce, particularly in targeted rural and remote areas in order to contribute to greater health systems responsiveness and improved health outcomes, especially among women and children. The HWM objectives are to: 1) Strengthen the pre-service training learning environment and in-service training program; 2) Support the building of a robust human resources information system to keep track of recruitment, deployment, retention, and continuing education; 3) Strengthen governance and management of the health workforce; and, 4) Support the conduct of human resources for health (HRH) research to improve HRH practices and retention mechanisms. The activity responds to Nigeria’s National Strategy Health Development Plan 2018—2022 (NSHDP II) and aligns with the USAID/Nigeria Country Development Cooperation Strategy  2020—2025. Banyan Global’s partners on HWM are Abt Associates, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), and Solina Health.
