Nigeria Receives $933 Million Grant from Global Fund to Combat HIV, TB, and Malaria

The Global Fund has allocated $933 million to Nigeria to support the country’s efforts to eradicate HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria between 2024 and 2026. The grant, part of the Global Fund’s Grant Cycle 7, aims to strengthen Nigeria’s response to these diseases.

The National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) will receive $340 million for HIV programs and $10 million to coordinate the multisectoral response to HIV. The grant will also support the scale-up of gender and human rights interventions, development of state strategic plans, and improvement of HIV coordination at the sub-national level.

Dr. Temitope Ilori, Director General of NACA, expressed her vision for a domestically driven HIV response that ends AIDS as a public health threat in a sustainable manner. She urged stakeholders to join forces to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV, strengthen the health response, and end AIDS by 2030.

The grant is a significant boost to Nigeria’s efforts to combat HIV, TB, and malaria, and will support the country’s goal of achieving sustainable health development.
