APVS Receives Key Stakeholder Invitation from the Nigerian Ministry of Health

The Nigerian Government recently completed a national TB prevalence survey. The survey indicated that the prevalence rate of TB was three times greater than originally estimated. Prevalence refers to the number of cases of TB in a population (usually stated as a number per 100,000 population) at a given point in time. In response, the Nigeria Ministry of Health’s National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control Programme (NTBLCP) developed a National Strategic Plan to define the strategies and resources needed to control TB in Nigeria between 2015 and 2020.

Dr. Akang Gabriel, National Coordinator NTBLCP, has extended a formal invitation (INVITATION LETTER) to APVS to attend this very important session on November 18, 2014.  APVS has been invited as a key stakeholder in the control of TB in Nigeria.

This invitation reflects the positive performance and impressions of TBDx™ in the Nigerian clinical evaluation.  It further highlights the importance of TBDx™ in high prevalence environments where active case finding is highly important, and cost control is a contributing factor.

We look forward to attending this important meeting and contributing to the Nigerian Government strategies to control the spread of TB.
