Keep listening to learn how Edego applies his skills to improve service delivery, vaccine acceptance and trust between remote communities and the local government.
“The best way to get to the root of problems involve face-to-face meeting with the people, to get first hand information, even if just to cross reference available data. You need to put yourself in their position to explain why they need to adjust for the benefit of good health. This, I believe, is the right approach to solving pressing issues, especially vaccine hesitancy. ”Ismaila Ibrahim Edego, Local Government Area (LGA) Management Support Team, Nigeria
