- Develop and publish a clear plan outlining how the govern- ment will deliver its share of the global targets agreed to in the Political Declaration from the United Nations High-Level Meeting on TB. Establish a cross-governmental working group to monitor and evaluate progress made against those targets. This means fully funding the National TB budget (currently only 24% funded).
- Secure family-centered TB services for all those at risk for TB, including people living with HIV, guaranteeing access to TB treatment and preventive services for everyone, especially key populations in remote areas.
- Support community systems for TB and HIV care, while also increasing capacity for drug-susceptibility testing, antiretroviral therapy and preventive therapy coverage.
- Boost domestic resource mobilization by increasing the distribution of public resources to health, pooling financing, and allocating tax revenues to health. In Nigeria, implementing such strategies can enable a six-fold increase in domestic TB expenditure between now and 2023.
