The Lancet Nigeria Commission

Investing in Health and the Future of the Nation

Nigeria is Africa's largest economy and most populous country, projected to become the world's third largest in terms of population by 2050. Yet its health outcomes are lagging, holding back progress and threatening the future of an otherwise dynamic nation.

This landmark Commission presents a comprehensive and pragmatic roadmap to boost investment and make best use of resources to ensure a healthy Nigeria takes the world stage in the coming decades.

What is a Lancet Commission?

A Lancet Commission is a scientific review, inquiry, and response to an urgent and often neglected or understudied health predicament. Lancet Commissions are science-led, international, and multidisciplinary collaborations that aim to achieve transformational change with a particular focus on policy or political action.
