The study reported the influence of teamwork on epidemic control in local government areas of Osun State, Nigeria, with a view to contributing to finding solutions to problems associated with teamwork in relation to epidemic control in local government areas of Osun State.

Survey research design was adopted for the study. The population of the study was three hundred and six (306) medical and health officers in the 30 local government areas of Osun State. Total enumeration technique was used to cover all the 306 health care professionals in the 30 local government areas. A validated questionnaire was the instrument used for data collection. The response rate of 93.1% was obtained and data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics.

Findings revealed that positive and significant relationship exists between teamwork and epidemic control (Df = 283, N = 285, r = .732**, p < 0.05). The p-value associated with the r statistics is less than the 0.05 level of significance. It implies that a unit increase in teamwork will increase the tendency for epidemic control activities in the studied area.
