5th International Conference on Parasitology & Microbiology
University of Ghana, Legon
I am TORNYIGAH Bernard, a young 2nd year doctoral student of universte Paris Descartes. My research theme is looking at infections that affect both mother and child health care with main emphasis on malaria. This theme stem from the vast literature on the failing malaria intervention specifically IPTp with sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine in eastern and southern Africa. Yet, WHO proposed a monthly uptake of this drug for malaria prevention during pregnancy, with understanding the effect the increased drug uptake will have on fetus development. This research is under the direction of Dr. Nicaise Ndam.
