The findings from this evaluation found the National EBS system to be effective in detecting relevant signals. It has contributed to the national surveillance of infectious diseases with more areas for strengthening.
We thank all stakeholders who contributed to this evaluation.
In resource-limited settings, indicator-based surveillance can be limited by available diagnostic, HR & surveillance capacity.
We introduced the EBS in Nigeria to supplement this and rapidly collect information of potential public health risk to trigger public health action.
This paper describes findings from our evaluation of the system with @PHE_uk.
