The organizational structure of NSV has changed since it's incorporation.
The NSV even prior to her incorporation receives numerous requests from various authorities
or agencies such as the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), State Ministry of Health (SMOH),
local government, health authorities (LGHA), private hospitals/clinic, and state federal/state/private
veterinary service etc. for opinions on professional issues. Response to some requests
sometimes requires several man-hours of research, discussions and report writing by our
Fellows (all these go on quietly and in unheralded fanfare). The number of requests has been
growing steadily over the years.
With the full incorporation, the organization of the NSV was restructured to reflect it's main objectives, i.e. training, research, diagnosis and professional affairs. There is a need for all of us to broaden human qualities and skills, in addition to research and professional competencies, in complex or difficult circumstances which form the foundation of professional virological practice. Thus in this restructuring, nine (9) major standing committees have emerged:
The professional affairs committee will continue to handle all inquiries relating to professional capabilities and effectively deal with the complexity, uncertainty and challenges of contemporary virological practice.
With the creation of the Directorate committee, all the relevant standing committees’ reports must be forwarded to the directorate committee, which is made up of the President and Chairmen of each standing committee for final review and approval so that all can benefit particularly from the professional, quality and safety perspectives.
In 2017, the NSV approved a new strategic plan that focuses on the Society’s goals and objectives.
Each committee operates based on existing guidelines and NSV constitution. Each committee meets every two months and submits her report a maximum of seven days after each meeting.
Several more committees are to be constituted during the 2019 annual meeting /scientific conference.
