(i)                 Impact of Health Education on Metropolitan Market Womens’ Behaviour towards Solid Waste Management: Effective Communication as an External Motivator.

This study builds on the Two-Face Model of human communication and affirmed the importance of effective communication in every interaction.  The need for sustainable solid waste management led to the waste to wealth initiative in some markets in Ibadan and thus highlighted the need to educate female traders on their role in the programme. Health education was used as an external motivator to improve solid waste management behaviour.  The findings from the study showed a significant improvement in the general behavior of metropolitan market women towards solid waste management.

(ii)              Attitude of Secondary School Teachers towards the inclusion of Sex Education in the Secondary School Curriculum in Ibadan

Providing effective sex education can be daunting because it means tackling potentially sensitive sexual issues.  Secondary school teachers may not welcome the opportunity to talk freely about sex before marriage, lesbian and gay, abortion, contraception and birth control. This study revealed that sex educators have strong views on what attitude students should have and what moral frame-work should govern student’s behaviour.  The results showed that more than 50% of the Teachers have attitude that tend to impose narrow moralistic view on their students and so do not totally support the inclusion of sex education in the secondary school curriculum. This implies that teachers may likely withhold important information about safe sex and contraception from their students.


b)      In Progress

(i)                 Assessment of the Environmental Health Condition of Public Schools in Ibadan Metropolis: An Essential Element of a Health Promoting School.

The study started in February 2009. The research aims at examining the quality of environmental health in the public school community, with a view of using the objectives of the National School Health Policy as a standard. It will also assess the extent to which this policy is implemented in public schools in Oyo state. The result of this study will expose the gap in implementing the school health policy. It will also highlight the need to create an enabling environment for inter-sectoral partnership in the promotion of child friendly school environment for teaching, learning and health development.


(iii)            Self Reported Influence of Electronic Media on Sexual Behavior of in- school Adolescents in Nigeria.

Researchers have documented the growing concerns about young people exposure to sexual content through television and other electronic media. Based on this, this study is being designed to investigate the influence of electronic media as experienced and reported by youths of varied background across Nigeria. It is expected that findings of this study would help to plan appropriate intervention programme to minimize this social menace. The findings will also help health educators, educational psychologist, school councilors and parents to further address the need for the inclusion and implementation of sex education in Nigerian schools.
