“The commissioning of the IHVN Campus marks our unwavering commitment as pioneers in health service implementation, capacity building, research, and ensuring equal access to quality healthcare through innovative and evidence-based strategies.”
“IHVN’s impressive campus will house two remarkable centers: the Program Implementation Center (PIC) and the International Research Center of Excellence. These centers will continue to foster training and expertise, ensuring the sustainability of vital programs combating HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria, and cancer.
“The IHVN Campus is set to revolutionize the fight against emerging infectious and non-infectious diseases, not just in Nigeria but across the African Continent” Dr. Dakum noted in the statement.
According to the statement, the IHVN campus boasts an array of facilities, including leasable office buildings, cutting-edge clinical laboratories for diagnosis, research, and training, functional clinic spaces for patient care and clinical trials, bio-specimen repositories for safe storage and management of bio-specimens, state-of-the-art multi-media lecture auditoriums, meeting rooms, and offices.
The campus’s grand commissioning ceremony will be preceded by an enlightening scientific seminar focused on addressing local health challenges through quality research and partnerships. This extraordinary event will bring together distinguished scientists and influential public-private stakeholders in the health sector.
We’re thrilled to announce that Professor Robert Gallo, Director of the Institute of Human Virology, Baltimore USA, Professor Alash’le Abimiku, Executive Director of the International Research Center of Excellence (IRCE), and Dr. Ifedayo Morayo Adetifa, Director General of the Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC), will grace the seminar as the main speakers!
