CDC Team Visit



The West Africa Regional Coordinator and Country Lead AFENET Nigeria, Dr. Patrick Nguku, with all Abuja staff, hosted the Director Center for Global Health, US CDC, Dr. Rebecca Martin; US CDC Nigeria Country Director, Dr Mahesh; Global Health Protection Project Director, Dr. Daniel Danvall; Director Immunization, Dr. Bolu Omotayo and other staff of US CDC Nigeria Office in AFENET Abuja and Kano offices.

Dr. Patrick facilitated the meeting and presentations were made by program leads Dr. Muhammed Shakir, Dr. Bashorun and Dr. Endie Waziri depicting their successes, challenges, lessons learnt and best practices. While in Kano, the state team lead, Dr. Haladu made a presentation on activities implemented in the state, portraying the successes and challenges encountered.

The US CDC team commended AFENET for the successes recorded especially on its tremendous contribution to public health. NFELTP started as a small unit but has remarkably grown and has built the capacity of physicians, veterinarians and laboratorians as field epidemiologists.  Although Nigeria is among the three (3) countries in the world with WPV, efforts made in its eradication was appreciated especially as creative ways have been explored. Similarly, the AFENET intervention strategy being implemented by AFENET was praised as it has led to a lot of successes. The level of successes attained is encouraging despite the difficulties experienced on the field. Keep up the good works.
