A key response strategy to reducing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is to expand diagnostic testing to ensure a large number of people can access testing during the public health emergency. During the course of the COVID-19 pandemic globally, laboratories from the private sector have been an important resource to assist with increasing the scale of testing through the provision of resources either through financial support or leveraging existing infrastructure and technical expertise. 

The Nigeria Centres for Disease Control (NCDC) has developed a national testing strategy that aims to harness the public and private sectors to rapidly expand diagnostic testing.

The guiding document has been developed to guide engagement with the private sector laboratories to help accelerate the availability of COVID-19 diagnostic testing for the duration of the public health emergency.
