Malaria research: making an impact in Nigeria

3 October 2011

Martin Meremikwu, Professor of Paediatrics and Child Health, University of Calabar, Nigeria talks about his work on a Cochrane Systematic Review about giving drugs to help prevent malaria illness in young children living in malaria areas. He also describes how evidence-based research is influencing policy in Nigeria, and how the local media around Calabar are also recognising the importance of an evidence-base to inform the health care stories that they cover. He considers how the young staff at the University of Calabar are demanding high quality evidence-based research, partly as a result of their involvement in The Cochrane Collaboration. Professor Meremikwu is interviewed by Paul Garner, Director of the EHCRC and Co-ordinating Editor of the CIDG.
