The overarching aim of the GF Resilient & Sustainable Systems for Health RSSH project is to improve the health and well-being of the Nigerian people by identifying and addressing systemic issues affecting the optimal delivery of health services in Nigeria.
The resulting high-level interventions have been designed to follow the Global Fund’s framework for RSSH that is built on the essential building blocks of WHO for a well-functioning health system, including community systems strengthening (CSS) as another critical component to be addressed in support of RSSH.
The RSSH grant is designed to strengthen the Nigerian health system across the HIV, TB, and Malaria program areas. In doing so it'll have interventions targeted at the HMIS, PSM & Lab system strengthening areas.
There is also the added dimension of the innovative "State approach" to be piloted in the three states of Oyo, Kaduna & Imo.
The state approach covers elements like public financial management, support for health insurance and health sector coordination among others.
Laboratory system strengthening aims to improve laboratory operations for optimal patient care, treatment, disease surveillance and response, biosafety and policy development.
Laboratory information management system is critical for the storage and management of information obtained in the course of the work of the laboratory, and it is a requirement for meeting quality standards, tracking turnaround time from specimen receipt to reporting of results, and improving patient outcomes.
