Having successfully contained the Ebola Virus Disease Outbreak in Nigeria, this lecture delivered today, Tuesday, 23rd September, 2014 and titled “.EVD Facts, Response & the Way Forward for Nigeria.” was an attempt to effectively discuss the Facts, current SitRep and the way forward with medical students and their teachers during their annual scientific conference in the College of Medicine, University of Lagos.

Lessons learnt from the successful containment need to be sustained, alertness and awareness by the general public must be maintained, the capacity of the port health services to guard against imported cases need to be strengthened while the level of preparedness of the health system for this kind of outbreak must be scaled up along with spicing the sensitivity of our routine surveillance system all over Nigeria.

Together, we shall stop the spread of Ebola Virus in Africa.!!
