Preliminary activities for the Prevalence Study

Day II  training of Interviewers,,,,,

Tuesday April 21 2015

Today, interviewers for Gede’s prevalence survey (of common mental disorders in a sample of 1200 people living with HIV-AIDS in Abuja) were put through their paces in terms of training on ways in which the data collection tool addresses depression. In addition to being trained on screening techniques and the questions posed, Interviewers also went through a number of practice sessions related to using the CIDI tool ‘in situ’ when the collection of data starts in earnest in May. The training continues throughout this week
