" I believe that the health sector in Nigeria has suffered so much decadence in recent years with the slum and rural areas being the most susceptible. These are some of the problems that the One Health concept seeks to address. I really hope to see people empowered with adequate knowledge that would help them live their lives to the fullest without fear. Being a Millennium Fellow is a great source of motivation for me seeing what other young people like me seek to achieve. I am looking forward to an overwhelming experience that would help transform my world at large. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: One Health Unibadan

One Health Unibadan is an initiative dedicated to advancing the One Health concept in the university community by uniting students from various disciplines in order to address the complex problems that occur at the junction of their fields of expertise. This integrated approach to health allows them to improve the well-being of animals, people, and the environment simultaneously. The club focuses on providing timely awareness, lectures, research and also provides opportunities for community members.

My project was centered on One Health advocacy in my community. We started by creating a strong online presence through social media after which we had some onsite programs. We had 2 major measurable impacts that serve as the highlights of the project.
