Millennium Fellowship Project: Larias Health Initiative
Larias Health Initiative is aimed at addressing the morbidity and mortality rate of malaria in high-risk population groups particularly among the children under 5 years of age and pregnant women. This entails sensitizing them on its prevention, symptoms through health outreaches and campaign as well as media publications. During the Millennium Fellowship period (August-November 2021) project LARIAS HEALTH INITIATIVE will organize 2 community health outreaches focusing on the rural areas (where screening would be done) as well as 2 webinars where medical information on malaria prevention and control will be provided and ultimately aiming to reach about 500 people.
About the Millennium Fellow
Agu Chiamaka Sarah is a bright, diligent and inquisitive fourth year medical student at Afe Babalola University. She was born in Warri, a state located in the southern part of the country and currently schools in Ekiti, a state located in the Western region of the country. She hails from the Eastern part of the country and had previously lived in the Northern part of the state. This has made her an all round citizen and has given her the opportunity to relate with people from different walks of life. The experiences she has gained upon interaction with these people have therefore fueled her interest in public health.
For as long as she can remember, she has always had a keen interest in public health. This is apparent in the fact that she has participated in several outreaches in her communities. These outreaches were targeted at people in low class/ rural communities who do not have access to proper health care services.
She also seizes every opportunity she gets to interact with patients in the teaching hospital in which she trains to educate them about their general health and wellbeing.
