school of hygiene Kano.

The school was established in 1932/33 for the purpose of training health personnel for the entire Northern region. The training of environmental health officers in institution commence with 12 students from different part of northern region. The regional government was in charge of the administration of institution and the students were trained in different aspect of preventive health.

Over the years, when the service of the institution in field of training improved, the name of school was changed to Ahmedau Bello University institution of Health, school of Hygiene, Kano. When the institution was run by ABU the people of Kano realized that the indigenes of Kano were not benefiting  well in terms of admission despite playing host of the school. This led to an agitation for the transfer of the ownership of college to Kano state government during administration of late Sabo Bakin Zuwo. This led to its take over  in 1980. New equipment and facilities were installed and  training  was improved upon.
