Nigeria

Nigeria’s weak health systems, inadequate health care infrastructure and limited outreach impede efforts to care fro the more than 3 million Nigerians living with HIV/AIDS and to prevent more infections.

Since 1981, URC has been working to strengthen primary health care services in Nigeria. The first project, led by our non-profit affiliate, the Center for Human Services, pioneered the development of a practical, systematic approach to operations research on critical issues facing primary health care services in developing countries.
