Dr. Okoro Nwenyi, a Measles consultant with CDC AFENET in the Nigeria Stop Polio Program, during the 459th meeting of BYSERICC which held on Monday 20th January 2020, announced that his 3 months visit to the state would be coming to an end within the day. In an interview with a BYSERICC RI Research Officer immediately after the meeting, he disclosed that he was sent to the State primarily to support the introduction of Measles 2nd dose introduction to routine immunization (RI), as well as to strengthen RI activities in the state, adding that he has worked to achieve this major objective together with BYSERICC and its Partners.

He mentioned further that his visit was his first experience with BYSERICC, though he had previously heard of the happenings at BYSERICC. He stated that the daily meetings have indeed been interesting, while also commending the manner with which events are tracked and decisions made to make sure that there are no gaps. He also mentioned that he enjoyed the analysis of issues whenever presentations are made while also lauding the zeal of the leadership of BYSERICC towards ensuring that RI is in top gear in the state. He mentioned also that Bayelsa state as a whole is a very interesting place to work; its people as well as the environment.

He highlighted a major challenge of the state’s environment, which makes it difficult to navigate between houses as one has to walk long distances while carrying out activities in the field because the alleyways are not wide enough for vehicles to pass through. He stated, however, that it is part of what makes public health an interesting aspect.
He encouraged the PM BYSERICC to keep up with the good work and to continue encouraging the people as he has been doing because it is quite a challenge to work in a place with such natural limitations. He also encouraged him to continually show the people that their complaints are being addressed.
