Improving tax collection systems in Nigeria. Research Summary

Abstract

In sub-Saharan Africa, expanding the resource base to meet the financing requirements for universal health coverage is a major challenge, especially through increasing tax revenues. However, Lagos State in Nigeria stands out as a case where internal revenue generation has improved dramatically since 1999.

RESYST research will examine how Lagos State succeeded in increasing tax revenue and to what extent this increment in tax revenue has impacted on financing of health care in the State.
