|AdminHistory||Ibidun Fakoya worked as part of the Migration, Ethnicity and Sexual Health Programme (MESH) at the Centre for Sexual Health and HIV Research, University College London. These records were collected as part of her work. |
Relevance for LSHTM: Fakoya writes 'I was a part-time MSc student at LSHTM 1999/2001. I did my Masters in Environmental Epidemiology and Policy. With regards to the collection, the [deposit] link is with Sigma research. After I stopped evaluating NAHIP programmes in 2009, Catherine Dodds and her colleagues at Sigma continued to evaluate the programme until the DoH decommissioned the programme (2012?). NAHIP was merged with CHAPS (the equivalent HIV prevention programme for gay and other men who have sex with men) into HIV Prevention England. The NAHIP HIV education campaign materials complement the CHAPS evaluation materials that Sigma research might hold (they evaluated CHAPS for the duration of the programme).'
