The Global Fund is a 21st-century organization designed to accelerate the end of AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria as epidemics. As a partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector and people affected by the diseases, the Global Fund mobilizes and invests nearly US$4 billion a year to support programs run by local experts in more than 140 countries. By challenging barriers and embracing innovative approaches, we are working together to better serve people affected by the diseases. In close collaboration with the Federal government of Nigeria (FGoN) through the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Health's National Products Supply Chain Management Programme (NPSCMP), we are embarking on an ambitious and innovative approach to the challenges across Nigeria's supply chain. To achieve this objective in its continuous efforts collaborating with Donors/Partners, the National Supply Chain Integration Project (NSCIP) was created in 2014 as a transitory mechanism to full Government ownership after a three year implementation The goal of NSCIP is to improve on the effectiveness and efficiency of the national supply chain by removing duplications while promoting synergy; strengthening collaboration through mutual participation in planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation; skill transfer through improved local content participation in project execution which would in turn prevent stock outs of health products in store/facilities, minimise wastages and effectively run the entire system.

While the Nigeria Supply Chain Integration Project (NSCIP) inception document was being developed in early 2015, one most potent characteristic of the pilot that remained unknown was – its exceptionally high risk disposition. Hence, no sooner than it’s agreed work plan was read out to stakeholders, it was knocked down as key stakeholders (Programs, PRs & some Partners) tactically withdrew largely by passive resistance and apathy. 

Sentinel Surveillance is described by the Project Management Office (PMO) of NSCIP as the - monitoring of her project landscape for risks, and appropriately managing of any risk/issue that could affect its survival/progression or the realization of its objectives. The Sentinel Monitoring unit, rather known as Perimeter Surveillance and Strategy - is the biggest lesson of the project’s first year and the “secret” of its resurrection from early “death” in September 2015, survival, sustenance and acclaimed successes.
