The Health Needs, Interests and Problems of the University of Lagos' Students

Nigeria expects much from its university graduates, and to live up to the expectation university students must be healthy. The report identifies students’ greatest needs to be education for emotional and social adjustment to university life, education in family life and sex; their problems, pregnancy out of wedlock; abortion and the unwedded mothers; the use of drugs, alcohol and tobacco; the dangers of communicable diseases and self medication; and western medication versus native medication. The report emphasises the need for counselling and guidance, and education for healthy living, as well as for better relationship between university authority and student body; for most of the students’ ill health sprang from psychological rather than physical causes.
