Dr Chikwe Andreas Ihekweazu – Director
Nigeria CDC was voted in as a new member of IANPHI during the 2011 Annual Meeting. One of the biggest achievements of the NCDC is the Nigerian Field Epidemiology Training Programme. This is a program that currently trains about 50 Nigerians annually, working in the public health departments of Federal and State Governments in the art and science of disease prevention, outbreak detection and control. During the Ebola threat, the NCDC re-activated isolation wards, collaborated with hospitals across the country, and supplied reagents for testing and trained staff.
