Following the passing of our former Team Leader, Dr Goli Lamiri in early May 2016, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome on board our new Team Leader, Dr Ibrahim Ozovehe Yisa with open arms, who took up his duties on 14th December 2016.
He is a great medical professional with 40 years of experience working in Public Health, health care and public administration (health policy; M&E; maternal health services; immunisation: service delivery system, cold chain management, epidemiology, disease surveillance) in Nigeria with numerous international donors. He understands the stakes at hand and knows the importance of his country to be able to undertake this important task.
He is fully committed to taking up his role and integrating into the Technical Assistance Team, who had maintained the Project activities during the absence of a Team Leader, with even more dedication from the Acting Team Leader, Ms Aminata Sidibé (Training & Contracting Advisor/Procurement Expert), Dr James Attah (Immunisation Expert), the national staff and support from Headquarters.
A special thanks to all and “bienvenu” to Dr Yisa.
