LHSS is working with the Nigerian government and local stakeholders to advance health systems strengthening and domestic resource mobilization priorities. Efforts include developing local capacity to sustain strong health system performance and supporting Nigerian states to expand sustainable health financing. Through close collaboration with government and local partners, our work aims to:

  • Expand financial risk protection to reduce financial barriers and out-of-pocket payments
  • Increase coverage for the poor and improve equitable access to essential health services for the most vulnerable populations, especially women and people with disabilities
  • Increase the number of fully functioning facilities providing essential health services
  • Increase utilization of state health insurance schemes and the basic healthcare provision fund for HIV/AIDS and TB services
  • Increase government funding and expenditure for HIV/AIDS and TB services
