    Five years after Nigeria experienced an Ebola outbreak, the country has continued to build on lessons learned.

    On the 24th of April 2019, the West African Health Organisation (WAHO) donated a thermal camera to be used at the new terminal of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

    The recently installed thermal camera at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, donated by the West African Health Organisation (WAHO) and commissioned by Professor Isaac Adewole, Honourable Minister for Health.

    This is part of a set of high resolution thermal cameras provided in three airports – Abuja, Enugu and Kano.

    At the commissioning of the thermal camera in Abuja by the Honourable Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole, the Director General of WAHO Professor Stanley Okolo committed to continue supporting health security in Nigeria, by working with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Port Health Services and other relevant agencies.

The thermal camera was donated by the West African Health Organisation and commissioned by Professor Isaac Adewole, the Honourable Minister of Health, on the 24th of April 2019.

    In his remarks, the Honourable Minister of Health expressed his gratitude to WAHO, stating that the thermal cameras will strengthen the country’s efforts at real time surveillance and detection at ports of entry.

    The Honourable Minister was represented by the Director of Planning, Research and Statistics, Dr. Emmanuel Meribole.

    In addition to the thermal cameras provided by WAHO, the Dangote Foundation had provided similar equipment in the past, in response to the Ebola outbreak.

    The provision of thermal cameras by the Dangote Foundation and WAHO in support of the work led on by NCDC in protecting the health of Nigerians, is an example of how the private sector and regional organisations can collaborate on health security.
