To strengthen skills in planning and evaluating research projects, the International Research Center of Excellence (IRCE) of the Institute of Human Virology Nigeria (IHVN) has trained researchers on effective project planning and evaluation in health research.

The four-day training which held at IHVN Head Office premises in Abuja, was facilitated by WHO certified facilitators. It covered areas such as, good practices in bio-medical research, developing GANNT and PERT charts and defining the purpose and scope of projects.

IRCE Coordinator, Dr. Elima Jeddy-Agba, said the training was for research coordinators to equip them to adequately manage research projects and achieve the aims and objectives of their research studies. “We hope that at the end of the training, the participants should be able to be conversant with Effective Project Planning and Evaluation and the tools used to be able to adequately plan, monitor and evaluate projects.” she said.

imagesFacilitator, Dr. Bartholomew. I. C. Brai, from the Department of Biochemistry, Federal University, Oye- Ekiti, said that the training was successful. “My expectation from the participants is that they would finalize what they have been taught and also go ahead and compete for grants with an international standard,” he added.

Participants who attended the training said it was informative and impactful. IHVN Program Assistant Strategic Information, Mr. Adah Amos Akoh said that the training has helped him learn “how to come up with a good project title, develop effective project statement, project goals, objectives and indicators and also the use of Microsoft Project Management software in coming up with GANNT chart applications.”
