What We Do

Launched in February 2001, the CDC-Nigeria office provides technical leadership and assistance to the Ministry of Health (MOH) and implementing partners to strategically scale up HIV testing, treatment and care, and prevention; build in-country capacity for high-quality national laboratory services; and assist in strengthening epidemiology, surveillance, laboratory, blood safety, operations research, and workforce capacity for a strong, sustainable public health system.

Additionally, the CDC-Nigeria office provides technical guidance to its partners to ensure that HIV/TB collaborative activities are strengthened. The office recently introduced a pilot program to implement TB control efforts in seven key health facilities presently providing services to nearly 1.5 million people and with the capacity to treat 1,600 patients with TB annually.
