Nigeria: Access Bank, Dangote Foundation Partner to Raise N5 Billion for IHVN Research Centre

To promote public and private partnership for quality health services, capacity building and research in West Africa, the Institute of Human Virology, Nigeria (IHVN) is collaborating with Access Bank and Dangote Foundation to raise N5 billion for the building of a state-of-the-art International Research Center of Excellence (IRCE) in Abuja.

The center which was established in 2015 is one of the major fulcrums of the vision of IHVN as a local non-governmental and not-for-profit organization established to bring quality health services within the reach of millions of Nigerians and nationals of the West African region.

The Chairman of the IHVN Ad-hoc Committee for the building of the Center, Alhaji (Dr.) Umaru Mutallab, said that with the establishment of IRCE, the Institute sees a future in which scientists are nurtured and provided world-class infrastructure to research collaboratively on diseases of relevance to the local community such as HIV, TB, malaria, cancer, non-communicable diseases, and emerging infectious diseases.
