Nigeria's Ebola response was a strategic timestamp in the country's Public Health development milestone and we can not deny the indispensability of digital tools to contain the outbreak.

Nigeria currently utilizes the Integrated Disease Surveillance & Response Framework. The framework allows the detection and response activities to diseases of public health importance to be tightly linked but controlled by the appointed few trained to work the system.

Because of the urgency in the need to rapidly detect and respond to diseases, there is a need for a system that would empower as many people as possible to contribute to disease detection and support the existing framework for the goal of achieving a strengthened health system.

Unlocking Health Communication Gateways With Digital Tools explores how Nigeria can create a system that would allow the surveillance framework gather information directly from members of the community.
