There have been several reports on the plights of women among the internally Displaced persons (IDPs) as virtually more critical than men in most of the IDPs camps in the north Eastern Nigeria which have in many respects. Threaten their existence to a smooth survival interpretation from both within the Nigerian territory and beyond since the insurgents emanated in 2009.

The reports have shown that the women among the displaced are experiencing untold hardships, struggling for their personal and children survival, quest for effective medical health care, as well as other necessities required to serve their individuals need in addition to same increase in the cost of production which further raised the persistence of difficulties encountered by among the displaced camps across the sub region.
