President Bola Tinubu has approved the establishment of the Regional Coordinating Centre (RCC) of the Africa Centres for Disease Control (Africa-CDC) in Nigeria, underscoring Nigeria’s commitment to regional and global health security. 

President Tinubu, who serves as the African Union (AU) Champion for Human Resources for Health and Community Health Delivery Partnership, approved the siting of the Centre in Abuja as part of his broader efforts to bolster Nigeria’s and West Africa’s collective capacity to respond swiftly to outbreaks. 

The decision not only reinforces Nigeria’s dedication to health security but also seeks to leverage local economic opportunities within the healthcare delivery value chain.
