Bakare Ayobami Adebayo
I am a community health physician completing my in training at University College Hospital Ibadan, Nigeria and am pursuing a PhD at the Department of Global Public Health, Karolinska Institutet. My areas of research experience include child health, implementation research and delivery of oxygen therapy. I have led the implementation of pulse oximetry and oxygen therapy interventions in secondary level hospitals in south west Nigeria, and through Oxygen for Life Initiative—a non for profit organization in Nigeria—I have been supporting the scale-up of pulse oximetry and oxygen systems in Nigeria through training and advocacy. My current research interest include treatment adherence for childhood pneumonia, oxygen therapy in primary health care and, childhood nutrition and vaccination.
My current research work is focused on care-seeking and treatment adherence for childhood pneumonia in northern and southern Nigeria, as part of the INSPIRING Project (GSK-Save the Children funded, partnered with University College London, Murdoch Children’s Research Institute Australia, Johns Hopkins University USA, University College Hospital Ibadan Nigeria, and Karolinska Institute Sweden). I also lead a usability assessment of a novel low pressure oxygen storage device in Nigeria, and actively contribute to the Every Breath Counts research group.
