ABSTRACTThis study examines the Influence of Monitoring and Evaluation on Project Sustainability inNigeria, A Case Study of Local Empowerment and Environmental Management Project(LEEMP) in Benue State. Monitoring and Evaluation (M & E) helps to track projectperformance at any given time and provides reasons for an observed project status. In thisstudy, M & E was defined as the key component of project management that gives controlover the main parameters that define a project; scope, quality,...

Developing and Validating of Predictive Model for Radiofrequency Radiation Emission Within the Vicinity of Fm Stations in Ghana.

ABSTRACT  The rapid growing number of FM stations with their corresponding antennas have led to an increase in the concern of the potential health risks that may arise as a result of exposure to RF radiations. The main objective of this research was to develop and validate a predictive model with real time measured data for FM antennas in Ghana. Theoretical and experimental assessment of radiofrequency emission due to FM antennas has been analysed. The maximum and minimum electric field spat...

Investigations into The Shelf Life and Nutritional Quality of Fresh Tomato Fruit (Solanum Lycopersicon) Following Two Post - Harvest Treatments.

ABSTRACT  Tomato production in Ghana is characterized by a glut and high post – harvest losses during the major season followed by scarcity and high prices during the off season. This is the result or absence of a standard method for preservation of fresh fruits. This research was conducted to determine an effective method for the post - harvest treatment of fresh tomato fruits to enhance shelf life while preserving its physicochemical and nutritional properties. Two experiments were condu...

Risk Assessment of Occupational Radiation Dose at The Teletherapy Facility of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital Ghana

ABSTRACT  The National centre for Radiotherapy and Nuclear Medicine at the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital in Ghana uses a Theratron Equinox 100 Cobalt-60 teletherapy machine that was commissioned in 2014 with a source activity of 370.4TBq. The prime objective of this research was to estimate the risk and probability of cancer induction to workers and also to evaluate the level of radiation safety at the facility. Data was collected by means of TLDs and personal dose records available between the...

Computational Hydrodynamic Modelling of the Fate and Impact of Natural Radionuclides in Liquid Effluent Discharges from The Gold Processing Plant at Aboso Goldmines in Damang Tarkwa, Ghana

ABSTRACT Transport of radioactivity in surface water of mine-origin can occur either due to a controlled release from a working mine site (e.g. release of excess stored water) or uncontrolled release (e.g. erosion of material from a site). The radionuclides could concentrate during mining and mineral ore processing and incorporate in water bodies or traditional food stuffs, and thus contribute to the radiation dose received by the public. Eulerian approach to Partial Differential Equations (...

Modelling Radionuclides Transport and Fate in Groundwater Systems: A Case Study of Newmont Akyem Goldmine in Ghana

Abstract It has been established that radionuclides accumulate during mining and mineral ore processing, leaching into water bodies and thus increases naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) concentration levels. In this work, theoretical and experimental methods have been used to study radionuclides transport and fate in groundwater systems at the Newmont Akyem Goldmine in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Radiation doses from radionuclides in groundwater have been modeled by considerin...

Mapping Air Quality Levels in Jos Urban Area of Plateau State, Nigeria.

Abstract This research is aimed at mapping Air quality levels in Jos metropolis. The research made use of data collected by the use of structured questionnaires. Solid waste constitute the highest source of air pollution with 43.72% followed by automobile with 31.69% from the research. In mapping the air quality levels, air quality metre was used in taking measurements of the air quality index (AQI). Fourteen locations in the study area were measured. Generally, the air quality of Jos is eith...

The purpose of this study was to analyze infrastructural support and trainer attributes in TIVET institutions in Kenya. Technical, Industrial, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training (TIVET) is acknowledged as a means of transforming and empowering the youth with skills, knowledge and attitudes to enable them become productive members of the society. The objective of the study were: 1) to establish the qualification of staff in selected institutions offering clothing and textile courses, 2) ...

Determinants Of Adherence To Exclusive Breast Feeding Among Hiv Positive Mothers Attending Child Welfare Clinic At Pumwani Maternity Hospital, Nairobi County, Kenya

Globally, the estimated number of children below 15 years of age living with HIV increased from 1.6 million in 2001 to 2.5 million in 2009. Almost 90% of these children live in sub-Saharan Africa. Over 90% the new infections of HIV are acquired through Mother-To-Child Transmission(MTCT). According to Kenya Aids Indicator Survey (KAIS) report of 2007, nearly 1 out of 10 pregnant women in Kenya are infected with HIV. Exclusive Breast Feeding (EBF) of a child remains the best and safest source o...

Determinants Of Skilled Delivery Services Utilization Among Women Of Reproductive Age In Migori County, Kenya

ABSTRACT  Skilled delivery is a key intervention that greatly contributes to improvement of maternal and child health. By extension, skilled delivery is a component of maternal and childcare provided during pregnancy, at delivery and post-delivery. Irrespective of the quality of service provided during pregnancy, delivery process remains a risk and hence needs to be given relevant attention. Global data shows that in developed countries, over 99% of the women access skilled delivery as compa...

Assessment Of The Adoption Of Apparel Computer Aided Design Technology Training In Selected Public Universities In Kenya

ABSTRACT The study examined the levels of adoption of Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology in training of clothing, apparel design courses. Application of apparel CAD technology in the training of the future labour force is a major step in coping with dynamic changes apparent in the textile and apparel industry. Application of apparel CAD technology in production processes in the textile and apparel firms is crucial if the industry is to remain competitive in the global market. The study a...

Role of community health workers monetary incentives on retention and health service delivery in kibwezi district, makueni county, kenya.

ABSTRACT The global policy of providing primary level care was initiated with the declaration of Alma-Ata in 1978.Kenya is a signatory to the AlmaAtta declaration. Implementation of the Community Health Services is a top priority for the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation in Kenya.

Use Of Routine Health Information For Decision Making Among Health Workers At Coast General Hospital, Mombasa County, Kenya

ABSTRACT Health workers collect and report data routinely on all their activities. Studies show that very little of this vast amount of information is used by those who are collecting the data and by local health management at health facility or County levels. Ideally, local data should be collected, analyzed and used in order to support local health management, health promotion and prevention and to improve local health service delivery. Significant resources have been invested on HMIS but ...
