Seven Nigerians complete e-health programmes




Seven Nigerians have completed the E-Health Knowledge and Skills programmes.

This was contained in a press statement made available to our correspondent by the United States Diplomatic Mission to Nigeria on Tuesday.

GEEKS is a capacity-building program funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and implemented by the Africa Field Epidemiology Network and the Institute of Human Virology, Nigeria.

The cohort included seven fellows from the National Primary Health Care Development Agency, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control.

During the programme, fellows, with oversight from 10 mentors, developed a Data Analysis and Visualization Tool for Nigeria’s District Health Information Software 2 dashboard to show linkages between adverse events following immunisation and immunizations received to help facilitate the fast-tracking of responses to any adverse events following immunisation.

The fellows also developed a routine immunisation and vaccine-preventable diseases dashboard for Nigeria’s Surveillance Outbreak Response Management and Analysis System to link immunisation coverage with outbreaks. Both dashboards will help inform and improve Nigeria’s public health programming and response efforts.

Recruitment for the fourth cohort is currently underway and will include staff from NPHCDA, NAFDAC, NCDC, and the Federal Ministry of Health.

The training and mentorship sessions will take place from May 2023 to April 2024 and will focus on building the capacity of subnational-level government staff.
