THE Institute of Human Virology Nigeria (IHVN) is collaborating with Access Bank and the Dangote Foundation to raise N5 billion for the building of a state-of-the-art International Research Centre of Excellence (IRCE) in Abuja.

The centre, established in 2015, is one of the major fulcrums of the vision of IHVN as a local non-governmental and not-for-profit organisation established to bring quality health services within the reach of millions of Nigerians and nationals of the West African region.

The chairman of the IHVN Ad-hoc Committee for the building of the Centre, Umaru Mutallab, said that with the establishment of IRCE, the Institute sees a future in which scientists are nurtured and provided world-class infrastructure to research collaboratively on diseases of relevance to the local community such as HIV, TB, malaria, cancer, non-communicable diseases, and emerging infectious diseases.
