The Nigerian Red Cross Society (NRCS) was established through an Act of the Parliament in 1960, statutorily to complement public authorities in humanitarian interventions. The NRCS has its operational structures in its 37 Branches countrywide, one in each State and the Federal Capital Territory, with over 800,000 volunteers across the 774 Local Government Areas of the Federation.

Our mandate as a National Society is to prevent and alleviate human suffering and to support individuals and communities to respond effectively to emergencies, as well as the amelioration of the conditions of the wounded and sick in armed forces in the field, in line with the Fundamental Principles of Red Cross & Red Crescent. We also support the implementation of the resolution of the Geneva International Convention and additional protocols to which the Government of the Federation has acceded.

We invite applications from qualified candidates to be part of:

Job Title: Team of Researchers (Proposals) for Standardised Expanded Nutrition Survey (SENS)

Locations: Ikyogen - Benue, Adagom 1 & 2, Adagom 3 and Ukende - Cross River
Employment Type: Contract
Type of Call: Research Grant


  • The quest for self-determination by the Anglophone regions of the Republic of Cameroon has created a humanitarian crisis leading to the movement of several persons in that region across the border to neighbouring communities in Nigeria. As at 31st January 2021, a total of 63,235 refugees were biometrically verified. These consisted of 54.4% females, 45.6% Males, The Cameroon refugees are predominantly in the Nigerian border states of Cross River (37,558/59.4%), Taraba (14,501/22.9%) and Benue (9,945/15.7%). A total of 8,507 (13.5%) are under-fives, and 13,658 (29.6%) women of reproductive age.
  • The UNHCR has developed 4 settlements which are hosting 33,050 (52.3%) of the refugees. The Adagom, Okende and Adagom3 settlements in Ogoja LGA of Cross River are hosting 23,114 refugees while the Ikyogen settlement in Kwande LGA of Benue State is hosting 9,935 refugees. The refugee settlements are near the respective host communities and share essential services. The remaining refugees live in the various host communities predominantly in rural communities.
  • While seeking durable solutions to the refugee situation, the UNHCR through the Nigerian Red Cross Society is currently supporting the refugees through several interventions to guarantee access to health, education and livelihood opportunities at the same level as the host communities. The UNHCR is also providing cash grants for food in the settlement (Cash based intervention)
  • The Nigerian Red Cross Society (NRCS) is a recipient of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) funds to implement ‘Delivering Health and Nutrition Assistance to Cameroon Refugees’ Project. ‘Delivering Health and Nutrition Assistance to Cameroon Refugees’ intervention strategy is focused on integrating refugees and asylum seekers’ healthcare into the Nigerian health and insurance systems, create simultaneous access to livelihood so refugees can be self-reliant and gradually de-escalate health support. The project is focused on strengthening the health care systems in refugees host communities across three states (Benue, Cross River and Taraba) without creating parallel systems.

Problems and Operational context

  • The UNHCR gives priority to ensuring good nutrition outcomes in refugee settings. Since the beginning of the Cameroon refugee situation, there is yet to be a detailed nutrition assessment. The Nigeria Nutrition and Health survey conducted in 2018 (NNHS 2018) report did not capture the refugee population who are more vulnerable. Rapid anthropometric surveys and facility data however suggests a high population of chronic malnutrition (stunting) and moderate acute malnutrition among the refugees and host communities.
  • As part of the NRCS refugee project deliverables, a strong need for a detailed nutrition survey such as the Standardised Expanded Nutrition Survey (SENS) * as an opportunity to collect nutrition and other key data needed for programme planning and improvement. The new Standardised Expanded Nutrition Survey (SENS) guidelines provide partners with practical, step-by-step guidance on how to collect nutrition data to establish a standardised data collection procedure that also uses cutting-edge, streamlined mobile technologies.
  • The data collected using SENS will then inform future programme direction and interventions. The SENS guidelines in field operations will promote improved monitoring of nutrition indexes, as nutrition continues to be a concern in most refugee contexts. NRCS will ensure deployment of SENS tool for continuous measurement of refugees’ nutrition levels, including anaemia, so as to react in a timely manner to problems and support assessment and programme planning in other sectors.

Project Locations:
