The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has called on health practitioners in the country to work towards improving the health indices of Nigerians. Declaring open the seventh annual national conference of Epidemiological Society of Nigeria (EPISON), in Abuja yesterday, the secretary, Health and Human Services Secretariat (HHSS), Barrister Amanda Pam, noted that the health indices of Nigerians, at the moment, are not very good. .
Pam charged the conference to deliberate on the health challenges facing the country and to come up with a comprehensive and elaborate communiqué to make policy-makers improve on the health status of Nigerians.
Represented by the director, FCT Primary Health Care, Dr Matthew Ashikeni, the secretary explained that the theme of the conference, ‘The role of Epidemiology in Sustainable Development Goals in Nigeria’, would discuss how to reduce cholera, diarrhea, malaria, Ebola and other health challenges in the society. Earlier in his remarks, the president of the society, Professor Ayuba Zoakah, had disclosed that the conference would soon be split into smaller units, to enable other health practitioners fully participate in the deliberations of the society.
