The Global Fund provides additional resources to support resource constraint countries to implement its national plans and meet its health goals towards achieving the Universal Health Coverage (UHC). 

The Global Fund (GF) has been supporting Nigeria in the strengthening and scale up of health care services in the area of HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria for over a decade. Through the Global Fund grants, there has been an increased access to HIV treatment thereby reducing the number of AIDS-related deaths in both adults and children. The availability of the global fund grants has improved service provision, capacity building among health workforce and infrastructures at all levels including private sectors. The provision of additional resources has enabled enhancement of the national health information system.

It supports interventions that will improve program efficiencies across the six-health system building blocks: Governance, Health information management system, supply chain management, laboratory services, financial management, community system and infrastructure.
