Title of Research: Antiretroviral Adherence in Lagos, Nigeria: A Mixed Methods Study


I began my studies at the University of Sheffield in 2014.  Previously, I had attended Florida International University where I obtained my MPH with a concentration in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, in 2012.  During this time, I obtained certification as an HIV tester and counsellor from the Miami-Dade Health Department.  I then moved back to my home country Nigeria, where I completed the mandatory National Youth Service from 2012-2013.  I worked under the Local Government Primary Health Centre in Lagos Island where I had the dual role of a health promotion/communications specialist and HIV tester and counsellor.  I have worked in various capacities, as a research assistant for an international NGO based in Nigeria, an in-process monitor for the polio eradication initiative organized by World Health Organization and an HIV peer educator trainer.  I am also certified in Public Health (CPH).
