Employment Status


MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership (MCGL) is a five-year global project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to provide targeted MNCH/FP/RH technical and capacity development assistance (TCDA) to countries to facilitate countries’ journeys to self-reliance. Being one of the six MOMENTUM suites of awards globally, MCGL contributes to global technical leadership and learning, and USAID’s policy dialogue for achievement of global MNCH/FP/RH goals through support to globally endorsed MNCH/FP/RH initiatives, strategies, frameworks, guidelines, and action plans. MCGL is the only Momentum award that has a strong emphasis on global leadership in addition to country level work. In Nigeria, MCGL addresses major contributors to maternal mortality and morbidity through the prevention and mitigation of the consequences of violence against women and girls (VAW/G) and possible drivers of child early and forced marriage (CEFM).


The project supports laws, policies, guidelines, and strategies that address four key technical priority areas: intimate partner violence (IPV), sexual violence (SV), child early and forced marriage (CEFM) and early adoption of family planning (FP) as well as stimulating communities with appropriate information and necessary knowledge to act in transforming discriminatory gender and social norms that continue to subordinate women. The technical approaches include formative assessment phase that utilizes the Social Norms Exploration Tool (SNET), Behaviorally Focused Applied Political Economy Analysis (BF-APEA) and Integrated Technical Organizational Capacity Assessment (ITOCA) to understand specific gaps within communities that will help inform the design of specific interventions through a co-creation process.
