I am a medical doctor with 5 years postgraduate specialist (residency) training. Im currently studying for a masters degree in Development Communication. I find development communication strategies such as social & behavioral change communication, participatory learning & action and theatre for development very interesting. I intend to apply my knowledge in development communication to public health with the aim to contributing positively to the health care delivery system of my country. My country Nigeria currently faces enormous health care problems like communicable diseases such as tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, malaria, diarrhoeal diseases to name afew. Nigeria is among the very few countries still battling with poliomyelitis eradication! Noncommunicable diseases like cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, cancers, obesity are also on the increase in Nigeria. The World Health Organization annual statistical report for 2013 show very high figures of maternal mortality rate, infant and under five mortality rates, poor maternal & child health services, poor sanitation, nutrition problems, pollution, climate change and environmental problems. In view of all these health challenges which are imperative if Nigeria hopes to attain the Millennium Development Goals by 2015 and beyond, I consider my training as a doctor with specialist training & training as a development communicator very essential towards my country's development. I intend to engage in mass advocacy, social mobilisation and behavior change communication to name afew.
