Appointment on Visitation important
Some of my studies addressed issues relating to the quality of life of patients with Tuberculosis, presence of Co-morbidities such as Diabetes mellitus and HIV. The knowledge of the health workers about these conditions were also explored. The outcome has increased awareness about other issues that affect desirable outcomes in this group of patients.
I worked within a multicentre study to assess the burden and impact of post Tuberculosis complications on the quality of life of patients with prior diagnosis / treatment of Tuberculosis.
Presently part of a group of researchers to assess the effectiveness of sweat Test in diagnosing Tuberculosis

Achieving Control of Asthma in Children in Africa (ACACIA)
This is an international multi centre study of Asthma in young people . it is a multidisciplinary partnership of adult lung health investigators and pediatricians in six countries. The study aim to identify 3,000 children aged 12-16 years with asthma symptoms in 6 African Countries and assess their asthma control, current treatment , knowledge of attitudes to asthma as well as the barriers to achieving good control. it will use school based survey data to design a school based intervention. We hope to test the feasibility of using theatre performance to address asthma knowledge and stigma.
This study is now in its third year and a drama intervention is been developed by the department of drama and theatre art LASU ( under Prof. Fosudo) which is the intervention, sadly this is presently on hold due to the COVID-19 issue. ( social distancing, school closure).
it is hope that this last phase of the study will be concluded as soon as feasible. Presently, over 10,000 students in the age 12-16 years have benefited from asthma screening in About 40 secondary schools in Lagos. Exhaled Nitric oxide and spirometry has been carried out in over 600 asthmatics diagnosed.
it has also built capacity for quality spirometry and exhaled Nitric oxide by training over 30 technicians and health care practitioners .
The study group has secured another round of funding to study air pollution amongst these group of people.
