Authors: Taroub Harb Faramand, Allison Annette Foster, Kelly Dale, Kate Roberts, Megan Ivankovich, Maddison Leigh Hall, Morgan Mickle, and Tisa Barrios Wilson

Statistics from Nigeria – particularly on maternal and child mortality, malaria, HIV/AIDS, and TB burden – highlight the country’s pervasive poverty, rampant inequality, lack of education, and insufficient access to services, among other gaps in education and health services in the north-east of the country. In support of improved health outcomes in Bauchi State, this review examines the health status of women, men, girls, and boys – along with social, economic, and political factors – and offers recommendations on how to address gender and social inclusion considerations, particularly as they relate to health care and related health and social factors.
