August 6th 2018 | NCDC, PHN partner with private sector towards ending epidemics in Nigeria
Lagos, Nigeria The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Private Sector Health Alliance of Nigeria (PHN), have launched a new initiative - the Alliance for Epidemic Preparedness and Response (A4EPR). The aim is to develop a formal structure for the private sector to support the Nigerian government through NCDC, in the prevention, preparedness, detection, response and control of outbreaks in Nigeria.
Even though the North-East is the epicentre of the crisis in Nigeria, we need to look at education holistically from a countrywide perspective. Several attacks on education such as violence against students and education personnel have been reported in other areas of the country.
As a signatory to the International Health Regulations (IHR), Nigeria has begun the final process towards the development of a National Action Plan for Health Security (NAPHS). This process has been coordinated by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) with support from the World Health Organization (WHO) and other partners.
Over the last few months, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has been supporting many States in the country to respond to outbreaks of cholera. The primary focus of the response has been to improve access to water and sanitation in these States. In addition, vaccination campaigns led by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) have been carried out in the most affected Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Adamawa and Yobe States.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has expressed the condolences of the Federal Government to the people affected by the tragic flooding in Katsina State on Monday, stating that the Buhari administration will ensure that it provides relief materials and support for those affected.
Prof. Osinbajo stated this on Tuesday night when he made an unscheduled stop at the border town of Jibia in Katsina State, where 44 lives were lost following the rainstorms that wreaked havoc in the area on Monday.
