"Africa has limited health facilities, health budget and health workers.

A new public health order is essential to tackle threats of infectious diseases"

- Dr John Nkengasong, Director Africa Centers for Disease Control

"In Nigeria, we are faced with concurrent disease outbreaks: Lassa fever, cholera, cerebrospinal meningitis, monkey pox etc.

There is a need to streamline our coordination center to manage responses and align our incident operations with global best practices"

- Dr Everistus Aniaku, Assistant Director/ EOC Division Head

Disease exposure control and socio-economic factors in outbreaks

"Enforcement is a key consideration in disease exposure control.

Disease exposure is the process by which the spread of disease is minimised by limiting contact between uninfected individuals and other individuals who are potential spreaders of a contagious disease."

- Dr Akindele Adebiyi

"Preparedness must include true community participation: citizens’ involvement in planning, implementation and evaluation of public health interventions"

Disease exposure control and socio-economic factors in outbreaks

- Dr Akindele Adebiyi, President elect, International Epidemiological Association

Private sector involvement in health security

"The bulk of the private sector are Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SME's) and are the engines of the world.

The Coalition Against COVID-19 group (CACOVID) support was from the realistic view that the #COVID19 crisis impacted everyone's lives"

- Ms Zouera Youssoufou, Managing Director, Dangote Foundations

"The private sector has a huge role to play in the health sector.

We need to strategise and think about translating science to speak a language the private sector can understand."

- Ms Zouera Youssoufou, Managing Director, Dangote Foundation

Rapid vaccine development and equitable access for COVID-19 and other priority pathogens

"The vision of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations is to create a world where epidemics and pandemics are no longer a threat to humanity.

This is not the first pandemic of the 21st century and it won’t be the last"

- Dr. Richard Hatchett, CEO CEPI

"We've set up the largest ever Lassa fever epidemiology study, which started in Nigeria in the year 2020.

We have made major investments in the development of vaccines, together with the NCDC and other partners.

Our aim should be to achieve equitable vaccine development and distribution"

- Dr Richard Hatchett, CEO, Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations

Every week, we detect cases of yellow fever, Lassa fever, measles, and other infectious diseases that are endemic in Nigeria.”
