Ahead of ECOWAS Good Practices in Health Forum, National Documentation Workshop Holds in Nigeria.


In preparation for the 1st ECOWAS Good Practices Forum in Health scheduled for Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso from 29-31 July 2015, the West African Health Organization (WAHO), has been engaging with the Member States and partners through nationally organized workshops to document good practices in family planning, maternal and newborn health, youth adolescent and sexual reproductive health.

This activity, which seeks to build the capacity of national stakeholders for documenting and sharing good practices in health programmes, was initially planned for nine countries : Cote d’ Ivoire, The Gambia, Mali, Nigeria and Togo, Benin, Burkina Faso, Ghana and Niger. However, Ghana and Nigeria had to postpone theirs due to clashes with other regional activities.

The workshop for Nigeria was eventually held from the 8-9 June, 2015, and was immediately followed with the good practices documentation exercises from the 10-11 June 2015.

In his opening remarks, Dr CC Ugboko, Head of Gender, Adolescence and Elderly Division of the Federal Ministry of Health, representing Dr. Wapada I. Balami, Director of Family Health, welcomed the various stakeholders to the workshop and thanked WAHO for making the necessary resources available for the realisation of such an important activity. He implored the delegates to commit themselves to the task before them to ensure that the set objectives were met.

In a brief welcome address delivered on behalf of the Director General of WAHO, Dr. Xavier Crespin, the Programme Officer for Traditional Medicine, Dr Kofi Busia, extended WAHO’s gratitude to the Honourable Minister of Health and the authorities of the Federal Ministry of Health for agreeing to organise the workshop. He reiterated WAHO’s commitment to ensuring the institutionalisation of the culture of good practices documentation in the region’s health systems, and hoped that the exercise would be approached with all the seriousness it deserves.

The workshop ended on the 11 June 2015, with the documentation of 3 potential good practices as well as the preparation of the accompanying abstracts and 2 potential oral/poster presentations.
