HAVING THE TIME OF MY LIFE-Shirley, Interviewer of the Prevalence Study

I may never be able to fully explain how it feels to be a part of this project. Having majored in psychology both at an undergraduate and postgraduate level, it is easy to tell how desperately Nigeria as a nation needs to better appreciate the profession and incorporate mental health needs in medical care, especially in the treatment of special populations like those living with HIV/AIDS.

I consider this project the beginning of greater things to come and the stepping stone for improved care not only for those living with HIV but the general population. Thumbs up to Gede Foundation for  making this possible. I will be back with more update on my experiences on the study as we continue with data collection.
