Solar-Energy System

The solar backup system included the installation of solar panels; set up of an inverter system and batteries.

Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR)

The launch of the first-of-its-kind SARS-CoV-2 Isothermal Molecular Assay (SIMA) developed by the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR) and fully funded by the FPCC Support Fund.

On the 18th of September 2020, NIMR unveiled a Point-of-Care molecular test kit that can detect COVID-19 in real-time for less than 40 minutes, compared to at least 2 hours that it takes the current testing protocols. The SIMA was developed to ease the challenges posed by the current method which requires very heavy laboratory and expensive equipment to function. Also, low-skilled personnel could be trained to perform this assay in tertiary health facilities where it can be used to diagnose COVID-19 in hospitalized patients.

The FPCC Support Fund also donated PPEs to the institution.
