ALIMA’S SPIRIT: ALIMA’s purpose is to save lives and provide care for the most vulnerable
populations, without any discrimination based on identity, religion or politics, through actions based
on proximity, innovation, and the alliance of organizations and individuals. We act with humanity and
impartiality in accordance with universal medical ethics. To gain access to patients, we undertake to
act in a neutral and independent manner.
Our CHARTER defines the VALUES and PRINCIPLES of our action:
CARING – INNOVATING – TOGETHER :
Since its creation in 2009, ALIMA has treated more than 3 million patients. Today ALIMA works in 10
countries in Western and Central Africa. In 2018 we plan to work in 41 projects including 10 research
projects focusing on malnutrition, Ebola and Lassa fever. All of these projects will support national
health authorities through more than 320 health facilities (including 28 hospitals and 294 health
facilities). Alima intervenes in response to humanitarian crises and patients are at the heart of all our
actions. We work in partnership whenever possible to ensure that our patients benefit from the best
and most relevant expertise wherever it is, whether within their own country or in the rest of the
ALIMA’S TEAM: more than 1800 people are currently working for ALIMA. The field teams, closest to
the patients, receive their support from coordination teams generally based in the countries’

at the operational headquarters in Dakar, Senegal. The Paris and New York teams are actively
working to raise funds and represent ALIMA. The rest of the ALIMA Galaxy includes individuals and
partner teams working on behalf of other organizations such as medical NGOs BEFEN, ALERT Health,

The humanitarian crisis in Nigeria’s northeast and the Lake Chad region is one of the most severe
ongoing crises in the world, now entering in its ninth year and shows no sign of abating. In 2018, at
least 7.7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in the worst affected states of Borno,
Adamawa and Yobe, while more than 1.6 million people remained internally displaced in these three
states in November 2017. 86% of internally displaced persons (IDPs) do not believe that the current
context allows for a safe and dignified return, and nearly 1 in 4 IDPs have expressed their intent to
settle in their current place of displacement instead of returning (OCHA HRP 2018).
An estimated 440,000 children under the age of 5 are malnourished across the 3 most-affected
States (HRP, February 2018), while 47% of them are in Borno State (207,521 SAM children, HPC
Nutrition Figures, November 2017). Furthermore, The Nigerian Cadre Harmonisé (November 2017)
states that in Borno State alone 1,575,414 individuals were facing critical food insecurity. The
Maiduguri Metropolitan Center (MC) and Jere Local Government Authority (LGA) are still categorized
as “in food crisis” by the IPC (Integrated Food Security Phase Classification).
In 2017, ALIMA continued to implement projects in Muna Garage in Jere LGA, where ALIMA performs
general consultations for children under 5 and provides Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) to
pregnant and lactating women (antenatal and postnatal consultations). ALIMA partners with UNFPA
to manage victims of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). An Outpatient Therapeutic Feeding
Program (OTP) is also available for children under 5 suffering from severe acute malnutrition (SAM)
in the clinic, where women and caretakers are trained to screen their children for malnutrition using
the MUAC tape.
In Maiduguri MC, where ALIMA is working in partnership with the University of Maiduguri Teaching
Hospital (UMTH), the Inpatient Therapeutic Feeding Center (ITFC) manages children under 5 suffering
from SAM with medical complications in a 30-bed capacity building.
In the same way, ALIMA has continued working in Monguno in 2019 in 6 IDP camps (GGSS, GSSS,
GDSS, Kuya, and Waterboard), in local host communities (Gana Ari, Abari, Bakassi) and in the
Maternal and Child Health Center (MCH). In Monguno, ALIMA is the lead agency for the health and
nutrition sector. In the IDPs camps and in the host communities, ALIMA delivers primary health care
and OTP to children under 5. In the MCH, ALIMA provides sexual and reproductive health care
including Basic Emergency Obstetric and Newborn care (BEmONC) and Comprehensive Emergency
Obstetric and Newborn care (CEmONC) in Monguno General Hospital. For SAM cases with medical
complications, ALIMA is running Inpatient Therapeutic Feeding Center in the MCH. In IPD center we
provide health care services for all under 5 years and lifesaving services for above 5 years. ALIMA
Monguno project support also the MOH in the management of outbreaks (Measles, cholera,.) by
providing health care and mass vaccination campaign in the LGA.
Based in Monguno, a rapid response team conducted an emergency intervention in Baga and Doro
towns (Kukawa LGA) in November 2017 to provide emergency OPD, OTP and SRH in 2 sites. The
emergency team also responded to cholera outbreak from August to November 2018 in Maiduguri
and Monguno, joining its efforts and coordinating its actions with the State Ministry of Health and
In January 2018, ALIMA in partnership with Borno state government via ministry of rehabilitation,
Ministry of Health and Hospital management board start the 3 years’ early recovery project funded
by DEU and will be implemented in 4 LGA, Askira-Uba, Hawul, Ngala and Monguno focusing on
