Technical Brief: Financing Sustainable Laboratory Programs in Nigeria - Laboratory Revolving Funds


The Prevention and Organizational Systems - AIDS Care and Treatment (Pro-ACT) project is a seven-year project (2009-2016) funded by USAID and implemented by MSH in five Nigerian states: Niger, Kwara, Kebbi, Sokoto, and Zamfara. Pro-ACT strengthens the capacity of Nigeria's public, private, and community sectors for sustainable HIV/AIDS and TB prevention, control, care and treatment integrated within the health system.

In collaboration with local stakeholders, Pro-ACT developed and implemented a strategy to strengthen laboratory revolving funds (LRF) at 16 facilities in five states. This brief outlines the process and results of the successful LRF strengthening intervention at General Hospital Minna located in Niger state.
