Using private-sector, third-party logistics providers, the USAID Global Health Supply Chain-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project implemented a cost-effective, efficient, safe and secure specimen referral system known as the National Integrated Specimen Referral Network (NiSRN), enabling patients to access quality laboratory testing irrespective of their location in Nigeria.
