MANAGEMENT OF XPERT MTB/RIF MACHINE OPTIMIZATION FOR 37 LOTS
The Institute of Human Virology, Nigeria (IHVN) is a leading local non-governmental organization implementing HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Malaria, Research and non-communicable disease projects in Nigeria through the development of infrastructure for treatment, care, prevention, and support for people living with and those affected by these diseases.
IHVN was selected as a Principal Recipient to oversee a two (2) year (2019-2022) TB PPM Grant by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. In 2016, Xpert MTB/RIF testing was adopted as the first point of diagnosis for all forms of TB in Nigeria but the sub-optimal functionality of these machines have contributed to the low detection rate of TB Case in Nigeria. As part of the activities in the PPM grant, IHVN has been mandated to ensure optimization of selected XpertMTB/RIF machines, on behalf of the National Tuberculosis, Leprosy and Buruli Ulcer Control Program (NTBLCP).
