Our organization, Equitable Health Access Initiative (EHAI), is an indigenous Non-Governmental Organization set to support the Government of Nigeria at the Federal, State and Local Government level in ensuring that Nigerians have access to affordable, quality and Equitable Health Care Services.
The USAID TB LON-3 project is aimed at complementing and accelerating the ongoing TB intervention activities implemented by the Government of Nigeria and partners, with the overall goal of increasing the number of tuberculosis (TB) cases that are diagnosed and successfully treated, thus reducing the TB burden. The Institute of Human Virology Nigeria (IHVN) is the recipient of the USAID TB LON Nigeria, Region 3 grant while EHAI is an Implementing Entity to IHVN on the grant.
One of the key activities to support the sustainability of TB service provision on the project is the mobilization of additional domestic resources to improve TB service coverage, care and management, especially for the most vulnerable in the society. This will be achieved in collaboration with the State Ministry of Health and other Agencies through advocacy for increased budgetary allocation and the inclusion of TB in benefit packages of the State Social Health Insurance Schemes.
