AHI on November 18, 2009 played host to a team from the Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State. The team which was made up of five Lecturers and 44 students at both 200 and 300 levels of the Demographics and social Statistics Program were on a learning visit aimed at equipping the young prospective demographers with possible knowledge of what demographic based research organizations are; see the networking of various arms of social and reproductive health research studies as well as the possible implementation of research findings especially from proposal of action plan processes.
The team was warmly received by AHI representatives and a tour round the facility enabled them have a better understanding of the various units of the organization.
An interaction session was held with the students and young demographers were urged to avail themselves of the ability of understanding necessary statistical software packages relevant to the discipline as these would contribute effectively to their appreciating the course. They were later exposed to issues relating to monitoring and evaluation; another key area in which demographers could fit in.
At the end the students thanked AHI for giving them the opportunity to learn more on the operations of the organization and were given IEC materials.
