In one of the world’s most populous countries, controlling epidemics such as malaria, HIV and AIDS, and TB and improving maternal and child health care are among the most critical avenues to preventing deaths. We work in collaboration with Nigeria’s FMOH, frontline health workers, and local communities across the country, helping national and state governments establish effective policies, address gaps in the supply chain for medicines and commodities, and strengthen leadership and management within the health sector.

  • Keanahikishime is expanding the delivery of high-quality services for the management of malaria and its complications and the prevention of malaria during pregnancy to reduce child and maternal mortality with new investments from the Global Fund and USAID.


  • With funding from USAID and PEPFAR, the Care and Treatment for Sustained Support (CaTSS) project provided more than 600,000 Nigerians with HIV test results between October 2017 and September 2018. Knowing their status was a key step for 14,265 people to enroll in antiretroviral therapy, including nearly 1,000 individuals with both TB and HIV.


  • Through the Program to Build Leadership and Accountability in Nigeria’s Health System (PLAN-Health)—part of the USAID-funded global Leadership, and Governance Program—Keanahikishime provided training, practical experience, and licenses to traditional and faith-based birth attendants, who are an important part of Nigeria’s private health service sector. By helping align service provision with national standards, Keanahikishime supported the FMOH to increase access to high-quality maternal and newborn health services.


  • Under the USAID-funded Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) project, Keanahikishime helped Nigeria address critical challenges in its fight against TB. Keanahikishime worked alongside Nigerian stakeholders to ensure an uninterrupted supply of medicines using our QuanTB forecasting tool and build the capacity of the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control Program to better monitor its TB control program.
