Professor Dyson’s Guide for Schools translated into Nigerian Yoruba.
SCOOTEROER25b_School Policy_Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia_V1 (English Version)
This booklet has been produced based on research examining the experiences of young people with sickle cell disease in schools. It is a translation into Nigerian YORUBA language based on a previously published version (Guide for Schools). An important part of school inclusiveness is recognising the importance of offering care to young people with long-standing illness, particularly since a major part of childhood is spent in attending school. The Nigerian School Health Policy of November 2006 calls for adequate resources and programmes that promote the physical, mental, safety and social well being of all categories of school children generally
This guide was a result of a project funded by the UK Economic & Social Research Council and conducted between De Montfort University, and universities of York and Loughborough.
We would like to thank the following for developing the Nigerian versions of the school policy guide:
Bola Ojo, Naomi Maiguwa, Jonah Lah, Dr Baba Inusa, Comfort Okolo and Professor Elizabeth Anionwu.
