National Strategic Plan for Tuberculosis Control

The National Strategic plan (2021-2025) for Tuberculosis (TB) was prepared in a participatory manner to address the future challenges and priorities in prevention, care and treatment of the TB and TB-HIV.

Several documents including programme review reports and WHO published documents were relied upon to develop this plan. This strategic plan serves as a resource mobilisation tool, sets future direction, and defines a baseline to monitor progress towards targets and impact of key priority interventions. This five-year plan has five components all linked together, i.e., Core, Operation and Technical, Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E), Budget and Emergency Preparedness Plan. The Core Plan includes an analysis of the TB burden and TB situation with a clear description of the challenges and programmatic gaps, definition of the goals and objectives and identification of strategic interventions and their related activities and sub-activities. The Operational Plan provides, for each activity and sub-activity, relevant and detailed information on the process of implementation. The M&E Plan is for tracking programme progress and impact using impact, outcome, and coverage/output indicators. The Technical Assistance Plan identifies interventions and activities that need technical assistance and providing detailed information on how the technical assistance should be carried out, while the Budget Plan is for required financial resources to finance the program interventions. 

This NSP-TB is developed to focus the efforts of the NTBLCP and all its partners in achieving the ambitious goal of universal access to high quality, patient-centred TB prevention, diagnosis, and treatment services for all in Nigeria by 2025. The NSP-TB frames its goals and objectives within the context of Nigeria’s National Health Strategic Development Plan 2018 – 2022. It describes the current challenges to TB control and the Program’s approach to addressing them. It also sets ambitious targets for this five-year period and describes in detail the activities that will be required to reach these targets.

The budget required to implement this strategy is USD 1,944,925,000 as shown in the table below:
