At a four day retreat in Nasarawa, IHVN Director Laboratory Research, Dr. Nicaise Ndembi stated that, “It is common practice by most organizations to shelf relevant generated data which ought to be made public for the scientific and academic community. IHVN is doing a lot of work and staff can work together in teams to write and submit manuscripts for consideration of publication in high impact factor journals.”

imagesDetailed processes in developing manuscripts such as crafting key messages, identifying a target audience, choosing a journal, determining authorship, peer review, ethics of publishing and elements of scientific writing were discussed. Participants also had group sessions to review and analyze data on their manuscripts.

A participant, IHVN Associate Director Strategic Information, Mrs. Fati Murtala-Ibrahim, noted that the skills gained will be useful in showcasing the giant strides the Institute is making in implementing the HIV program.

Manuscripts worked on during the retreat are to feature in a US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) five-year End of Fund Opportunity Announcement (FOA) Symposium in September 2017.
