In a significant commitment to elevate the health and well-being of children and women in Nigeria, the Vaccine Network for Disease Control (VNDC), a non-governmental organisation, has forged a close partnership with the special adviser to President Bola Tinubu on health, Dr. Salma Ibrahim Anas.
The CEO of VNDC, Mrs. Chika Offor conveyed this pledge during an interview with journalists in Abuja. She made this announcement on the sidelines of a dinner organised by the Southern Borno Stakeholders Forum to honour Anas.
In her congratulatory message to Anas, Offor outlined VNDC’s core objective: addressing key health challenges that confront children and women in Nigeria. These challenges encompass vaccine-preventable diseases and maternal health issues, which remain significant areas of concern in the country.
The partnership between VNDC and the Special Adviser’s office symbolises a collective effort to prioritise and enhance healthcare services for these vulnerable segments of the population. This commitment will involve a range of initiatives, including increasing access to vaccines, expanding immunisation coverage, and fortifying healthcare infrastructure and services.
By focusing on the health of children and women, the collaborative efforts of the Vaccine Network and the special adviser’s office aspire to contribute significantly to the overall development and well-being of Nigeria’s populace. Furthermore, the partnership will encompass advocacy and awareness campaigns aimed at emphasising the importance of vaccinations and maternal health practices.
In summary, the cooperation between the vaccine network and the special adviser’s office underscores a shared commitment to achieving improved health outcomes for children and women across Nigeria. This initiative seeks to bring about positive changes in the healthcare landscape, ultimately benefiting some of the most vulnerable members of society.
