Although more people living with HIV now have access to anti-retroviral treatment, many are still coming down with non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cardiac diseases etc.

Aside from funding the research, ISN has donated premium laboratory instruments and reagents worth over N25 million to the General Hospital, Kubwa to further this research and promote quality medical diagnosis at the facility.

Some of the instruments donated include Cobas c111 and AVL, with the capacity to run over 40 tests including electrolytes, renal function, liver function, lipid profile, blood glucose, proteins and critical care.
