What is NCDC?

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) is the government agency with the mandate to coordinate the surveillance, detection and response to infectious disease outbreaks. Over the last three years, NCDC has deployed a new tool for disease surveillance. The Surveillance, Outbreak Response Management and Analysis System (SORMAS) is a system jointly developed between the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) to improve disease surveillance as well as detection and management of outbreaks and thus strengthen the public health service in Nigeria.

You are advised to calm down and read this guide to avoid mistakes that might lead to your disqualification.


We have earlier warned applicants that Nigeria Centre for Disease Control recruitment is free. On no account will you remit money to anybody for the sake of getting a position in the ongoing recruitment.

We will never contact you with regards to NCDC recruitment and ask you for payment.
