The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, on Wednesday, said the 2021 Nigeria Malaria Indicator Survey (NMIS) would generate the much-needed data to help the country review its strategies.

Ehanire, represented by Mahmuda Mamman, the permanent secretary in the ministry, said this in Abuja during the inauguration of the 2021 Nigeria Malaria Indicator Survey.

“It is my hope that this 2021 NMIS will generate the much-needed data that will help us to review our strategies for combating the malaria menace in our country.

“To also identify gaps, as well as afford us the opportunity to contribute our individual and collective quota to the elimination of the disease,’’ he said.

The minister said that the last in-country malaria indicator survey was conducted in 2015, during which information derived from the study provided Nigeria with the opportunities to ascertain the progress made. (NAN)
