Communication is a very important aspect of any institution because most times, people are too focused on getting their work done, and have little time to tell the important stories about their work.
This is where our #BellaNaijaWCW this week Ada Ezeokoli comes in. With her Communications (Journalism & Creative Writing) degree from Anderson University, Ada is using her skills in communications media, journalism and research, to boost Nigeria’s health sector.
She’s also a Communications Director at EpiAFRIC, “a public health social enterprise that works in the areas of public health consulting, conferences, courses and research.”
She’s a member of team that evaluated the African Union (AU)’s response to Ebola in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea in 2015 and has been involved in evaluation and surveys with SURE-P MCH programme; Christian AID UK Nigeria SCHHR programme; WFI Reversible Male Contraceptives Survey; ARFH Assessment of Community Health Facility Referral Linkages in Nigeria; and Stakeholder Survey, Strategic Communication for
Universal Health Coverage.
Through her work, Ada is pushing the importance of empowering Nigerians with accurate, reliable, and relevant health information to drive accountability, transparency, and good governance.
Ada has an M.A. in Ancient Near Eastern History and has a Certificate in Leadership and Family Studies. She’s also a documentary photographer.
She’s also one of the 200 emerging leaders selected from 45 African countries for the 2019 Obama Foundation Leaders: Africa programme.
Ada is using her skills to grow Nigeria and Africa’s health sector and we’re rooting for her.
