Event description

Description

As part of the ongoing process of building capacity of young and emerging leaders in the field of Reproductive and Family planning in Nigeria, the relevance of convening a series of webinars to bridge the gap in presenting experiences from field interventions is important. In addition to this, during the 4th Nigerian National Family Planning Conference (2016), the scientific committee received few and poor-quality abstracts from the development sector across the country. To bridge these gaps in writing, the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) Family Planning Portfolio in Nigeria in partnership with the Association for Advancement of Family Planning (AAFP) will be hosting a webinar session on “How to write abstracts for submission to scientific conference”. This webinar session is targeted towards individuals who work in the development and non-governmental sector in Nigeria, including members of public who may be interested in writing and submitting abstracts to scientific conferences.

The webinar session will provide clear and concise guidelines on how to write abstract in English while reflecting on the most common errors that development workers and academics make when they write abstracts for submission to public health or development sector related conferences. The session will focus on how to write an enticing abstract that will fascinate readers and reviewers to want to hear more about the entire work. The session will also provide tips to participants on how to write abstracts that succinctly summarise their work.

Session to be moderated by:

Rael Odengo, Program Officer, Johns Hopkins Centre for Communication Programs

Panellists:

Prof. Adesegun Fatusi, Department of Community Medicine, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria
Dr (Mrs) Loretta Ntoimo, Women’s Health and Action Research Canter

Akinsewa Akiode, Director, Portfolio Research and M&E, NURHI/TCI, CCP Nigeria
