University of Ibadan


Based in Ibadan, Nigeria, the University of Ibadan, College of Medicine, Faculty of Public Health is one of the leading research and teaching health institutions in Western Africa and is actively involved in programmes and research in health sector reform. The college works closely with state and federal governments in Nigeria, and with NGOs and international agencies. The faculty have collaborated closely with faculties in JHSPH and IDS on a number of projects in health education and reproductive health. It brings to the consortium important expertise in understanding knowledge and attitudes.

Oladimeji Oladepo from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria discusses findings from recent FHS research on the role of patent medicine vendors in the informal market for anti-malarials in Nigeria.
A recent study in Nigeria by the Future Heath Systems (FHS) consortium identified patent medicine vendors (PMV) associations as having potential important roles to play in providing information, influencing PMV behaviour and procuring drugs, but the government knows very little about PMVs or their associations. As a way of bridging this gap, a team from the University of Ibadan undertook an exploratory study among the officers of Patent Medicine Vendors Association (PMVA) in Oyo State, Nigeria at the state, zonal and local government area (LGA) levels to explore the organizational and regulatory practices of the association in relation to the management of malaria, using an exploratory research design.
A team from Ibadan University undertook a scoping study in 12 local government areas (LGAs) in three states to explore the malaria treatment market and the role of PMVs, and to look at ways to improve malaria treatment.
Three key activities were undertaken by FHS during the initial phase of this five-year project. First, key considerations in strengthening evidence-policy linkages in health system research were developed by FHS researchers through workshops and electronic communications. Four key considerations in strengthening evidence-policy linkages are postulated: development context; research characteristics; decision-making processes; and stakeholder engagement. Second, these four considerations were applied to research proposals in each of the six countries to highlight features in the research plans that potentially strengthen the research-policy interface and opportunities for improvement. Finally, the utility of the approach for setting research priorities in health policy and systems research was reflected upon.
