Solomon joined SCIDaR after witnessing the high-impact potential of applying scientific methods to real-world problems while working as a data clerk on the NAIIS project. This prompted him to seek out further opportunities to contribute his quota to improving the healthcare/development space by pursuing a career at SCIDaR.
Over the past four years, he has worked as a data manager for the Polio EOC in Borno on the Polio Outbreak Response project, a Program Associate for the Reaching Inaccessible Children (RIC) which leveraged security teams to vaccinate children across security-challenged communities against wild poliovirus. The outcome of this was a polio-free certification bestowed on Nigeria by the Africa Regional Certification Commission (ARCC).
In his current role, he supports the Accelerating Nutrition Results in Nigeria (ANRiN) which is aimed at providing a basic package of nutrition services to pregnant women, lactating women and children under the age of five to improve the nutrition profile across the five implementing states (Abia, Gombe, Kwara, Oyo and Plateau).
In addition, he works on Project Stellar which is geared towards broader laboratory systems strengthening using funding earmarked for COVID-19 response management across five sub-Saharan countries (Chad, Congo, Gambia, Guinea and Togo).
