The NESG partnered with the Africa Initiative for Governance (AIG) to enable the deployment of an incidence and response tracker, dashboard and predictive analytic platform – to assist the containment of the COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria. The key strategic objectives of the Systems Platform are to provide a robust, up-to-date database of Federal and Sub-national resource requirements for the COVID-19 response, as well as comprehensive real-time database of Federal and Sub-national resource availability for the COVID-19 response based on the WHO recommended resource specifications for packages for COVID-19.

The platform which is endorsed by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, the Ministry of Health, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), will provide real time data to the federal and state governments, private sector, international organizations and other donors that intend to mobilize and provide human and material resources in response to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Nigeria.
