CCM's Tuberculosis Grant

In collaboration with the Global Fund and other partners, Nigeria began implementing an ambitious plan to expand access to TB services in 2019. Despite COVID-19 disruptions, Nigeria was one of the few countries in the world in 2020 that reported an increase in TB case notification over the previous year. The country also recorded a 50% increase in the number of people treated with TB between 2020 and 2021. To fight drug-resistant TB, the Global Fund is encouraging and supporting countries to transition to shorter oral regimens for drug-resistant TB, which are more effective. Between 2020 and 2021, the number of people treated for TB in the countries where the Global Fund invests rose by about 12%, with those treated for drug-resistant TB rising by 9%, as countries mitigated the impact of COVID-19 on treatment programs.
