The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the goal of ending tuberculosis by 2030, as set by the United Nations High-Level Meeting (UN HLM) on tuberculosis. To bridge the gap between the commitments made and the current scenario, the importance of innovative solutions and advanced technology in the response to tuberculosis cannot be overstated. With this in mind, the DHDC remains committed to supporting the efforts of the TB programs at the national and state levels in order to accelerate progress towards mitigating the impact of COVID-19 on TB case notification and treatment adherence. This will also enable us to get back on track in order to achieve the human rights and gender-related commitments.

After successfully piloting the OneImpact Nigeria app in Lagos State and holding a successful dissemination in Abuja, Nigeria, the Debriche Health Development Centre (DHDC) is pleased to announce that we, along with our partners, will be scaling up available services on the OneImpact Nigeria app to further support the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control Program's efforts through the Challenge Facility for Civil Society round 11 of the Stop TB Partnership, Geneva. The app will assist in providing essential services to TB-affected communities.

The OneImpact CLM will support the engagement of TB-affected communities for key actions and the implementation of grassroot initiatives; facilitate dialogue and collective action between affected TB communities, civil society, TB programs, legal and social welfare systems for a people-centered, rights-based, and gender transformative approach to TB towards the achievement of the UN HLM Commitments and the key areas of action from the Deadly Divide:TB Commitments vs TB Realities.

The CFCS Round 11 is aimed at advancing the engagement of TB-affected communities (slum dwellers) in community-led monitoring to reduce barriers to access and to promote accountability in TB in Lagos State within the framework of the following objectives:

1. To advance the capacity of TB-affected communities and the general public on TB and the rights of people affected by TB using OneImpact and other means in Lagos State, Nigeria.
2. To scale up community-led monitoring to reduce barriers to access among slum dwellers in Lagos State, Nigeria.
3. To improve the uptake and use of CLM data among key decision-makers in Lagos State, Nigeria, using OneImpact.
4. To participate and engage in various TB advocacy and accountability initiatives at national, regional, and global levels.

The expected impact of this intervention on TB response in Lagos State and Nigeria in the long run is to overcome barriers to accessing health services, support services, reduce human rights violations, and reduce stigma in slum-dwelling communities through the One Impact community–led monitoring.
