On 5 March 2015, Meghan Bohren (WHO), Bukola Fawole and Titiloye Musibau (University of Ibadan) conducted site visits to the three Abuja hospitals (Wuse General Hospital,Maitama District Hospital and Asokoro District Hospital).
We met with the BOLD research teams (in particular, Dr.Alu and Dr. Anate at Maitama, Dr. Alabi at Wuse, and Dr.Adebayo, Dr. Osaze and Mrs. Musa at Asokoro) to review the data collection process, compare study logbooks to birth registries and discuss any issues related to the study. We were pleased to see that the study teams were progressing well with data collection and capturing all relevant cases. We also met with representatives of the BOLD-Abuja formative research team at the FCT Primary Health Care Development Board. We discussed the Abuja team’s progress to date and developed a plan to finish data collection.
