Specialized services for people with Tuberculosis…

Nigeria has the world’s 10th largest tuberculosis burden with nearly 84,263 estimated new cases annually and over 27,000 mortality rate. Both the TB detection rate (ca. 30%) and the treatment success rate (ca. 60%) are among the lowest of high-TB burden countries. The public health burden posed by TB is becoming increasingly important as the country’s HIV/AIDS epidemic unfolds; the WHO estimates that 26% of Nigeria’s TB patients are HIV-positive. Our specialized TB services are essential in a country where TB is so widespread.
