Validation study of Nigerian Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ)
The food validation study seeks to investigate the dietary habits of Nigerians living in Nigeria. It is being conducted among the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria using Ibadan city as the study recruitment site.
The study is designed to conduct 4 interviews for at least 200 of 220 participants, using the food frequency questionnaire and 24 hour dietary recall form, with an interval of 6 months, with allowance for change in seasons (rainy to dry) and the foods peculiar to each season.
A food picture book was developed to contextualize the food portions and enhance recognition of foods and fruits. The food picture book is to ensure food portion accuracy.
Nigerian Cervical Cancer Screening ECHO Project
The Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) model was developed as a platform to deliver complex specialty medical care to underserved populations through an innovative educational model of team‐based interdisciplinary development. Using state‐of‐the‐art telehealth technology, best practice protocols, and case‐based learning, ECHO trains and supports primary care providers to develop knowledge and self‐efficacy on a variety of diseases. This model will be used to improve cervical cancer care delivery in Nigeria.
Cancer registration is critical to the formulation and realization of any national, state or local cancer control plan. We have assisted the Federal Ministry of Health in Nigeria to develop the National Cancer Control Plan (2018 – 2022) and generate incidence report through the data collected by the cancer registries in Nigeria.
