GxAlert was jointly conceived by Dr. Joshua Obasanya, National Coordinator of the TB and Leprosy Programme of the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Health and the current SystemOne team. The team realized that by networking the GeneXpert devices via a cloud application, they could save months of delay in routine reporting while also increasing data quality.
With this relatively inexpensive innovation, the Nigerian FMOH gains substantial new weapons in the fight against tuberculosis, particularly against Multi-Drug Resistant TB (MDR-TB).

About the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Health
The National tuberculosis and Leprosy Training Centre was established seventeen years ago, precisely in 1991. It is about four kilometers from Zaria town, along the old Zaria – Kaduna road, popularly called ‘layi.’ It has three mandates, patient care, training, and research on TB and Leprosy. It is not a surprise that the mandate has been extended consciously to cover for HIV/AIDS. See more at www.ntbltc.org
