‘Health Reporters’ is a non profit initiative with the sole aim of raising the visibility of health issues in the media, both within Nigeria and further afield. Recently, the editor of the online Journal asked Gede to contribute a piece focusing on the reasons why mental health should be included in the forthcoming Sustainable Development Targets. The article, written by the Foundation’s Managing Director, can be seen at -http://healthreporters.info/2014/10/09/why-should-mental-health-targets-
Following this well received article, Gede has been asked to write another piece on the ways in which common mental disorders (anxiety, depression and substance abuse) can be integrated into HIV-AIDS care and support regimes, with a particular focus on the role of Adherence Counsellors.
