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 will have interventions targeted at the HMIS, PSM & Lab system strengthening areas.

There is also the additional 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.

FMOH is interested in ensuring that Laboratory information is incorporated in the national instance of DHIS 2, this will ensure that information on laboratory activities are also available on the national portal.

In line with specific intervention targeted strengthening Health Management Information system, the project team is proposing short term technical assistance to support the development of a national paper based Lab Information System.
