Developing local capacity for scientific research and implementing interventions around maternal mortality and morbidity in Northern Nigeria
Terrence Lo, DrPH Candidate
From May to August 2007, Terrence was part of a research project that was a joint collaboration between Ahmadu-Bello University (ABU) and UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health (Bixby program). The project was envisioned to be both a research study and a training project designed to develop local capacity for scientific research and implementing interventions around maternal mortality and morbidity. Both Nigerian and American university professors and students would be actively involved in training and mentoring research fellows for a 5 year period in northern Nigeria, a region that has had extremely high rates of maternal mortality.
