In 2007 a human case of avian influenza was identified in Nigeria leading to establishment of a sentinel surveillance system in four sites for influenza-like illnesses (ILI) and severe acute respiratory infections (SARI) and a National Influenza Reference Laboratory for influenza virus detection. We evaluated the system and analyzed surveillance data to assess the pattern of influenza in Nigeria.
