ACEGID Supports Pubic Health Authorities with Evidence

ACEGID works with national, regional and international public health authorities on outbreak response. Using genomics data that are presented in interactive and engaging forms, we provide evidence to inform policy formulation, implementation and review. For example, ACEGID generated and shared genomics data that guided the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control’s policies.

The centre’s collaboration with these authorities was responsible for their successful response to outbreaks of Ebola, Lassa fever, mpox, yellow fever, and covid-19 in Nigeria, West Africa and Africa. We have provided capacity building and/or genomics sequencing support to 53 of the 55 African countries.
