Dr Ngozi Erondu
of Health Information
I am a trained epidemiologist with specific interests and experience in infectious disease surveillance and control and health systems strengthening. I have worked on evaluation and operational improvement of surveillance systems for the last 10 years. I have worked on general surveillance strategies such as Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (IDSR) in the WHO-AFRO region as well as disease specific surveillance systems, namely Vaccine Preventable Diseases, Acute Flaccid Paralysis (Poliomyelitis), Meningococcal Meningitis and Ebola Virus Disease. I continue to work on projects to improve surveillance and health information systems. I also work extensively on global governance and policy analyses to translate research into policy in low and middle income countries.
I have taught Analysis and Design of Research Studies, Control of Infectious Disease (DL), and Epidemiology and control of Communicable Diseases (ECCD). I also supervise MSc students.
I have been a co-investigator in the following research projects:
- Evaluation of performance and costs of meningococcal meningitis surveillance in Chad
- The LINK Programme: Improving the use of data for malaria decision making in Africa
- Evaluation of perfomance of the malaria surveillance system in Afghanistan
- Post-Ebola health system reform analysis of global health security and universal health coverage policies
- Scoping Study for a Malaria and Malaria Health System Strengthening Partnership
