Conducting a thorough SWOT analysis that includes identifying threats is essential for setting up a new medical research center in Nigeria. Recognizing threats and understanding their implications allows for proactive planning, resource allocation, risk management, stakeholder engagement, and strategic decision-making, all of which contribute to the overall success and sustainability of the research center. Developing contingency plans to minimize the impact of threats in setting up a new research center in Nigeria is crucial for ensuring the center's stability and success. And also adapting the threat matrix and contingency plans can help minimize the impact of threats when setting up a new research center in Nigeria. Involving security experts, local authorities, and consulting with local stakeholders can provide valuable insights and improve the accuracy of the threat matrix. It is important to note that the specific threats and their categories may vary depending on the research center's location, sector, and other contextual factors. Adhering to international best practices, leveraging local knowledge and expertise, and maintaining open lines of communication can help navigate these human-related threats effectively. Therefore, it is recommended to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment and consult with local experts to identify and categorize the most relevant threats.
