Since the establishment of Tuberculosis, Leprosy and Buruli ulcer Control Programme, significant landmarks have been accomplished. Presently, the Programme operates the National Strategic Plan for Tuberculosis, Leprosy and Buruli ulcer Control 2010 – 2015.

With this plan, the NTBLCP aims to reduce the prevalence of the three diseases to levels where they no longer constitute public health problems in the country. In 2013, the NTBLCP received both financial and technical support from various organizations such as the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Global Fund for ATM (to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria), KNCV Consortium (TB CARE 1, MSH and FHI 360) WHO, ILEP Organisations and APIN.

The Director of public health through the NTBLCP, expresses appreciation to all donor agencies, technical and implementing partners, field workers, local and international consultants and most importantly to all those affected directly or indirectly by the three diseases who have contributed to all the achievements attained towards a Nigeria free of TB, Leprosy and Buruli ulcer.
