Olusegun Mimiko, the immediate past governor of Ondo State, will on Friday, September 22, 2017 speak at the Chatham House Conference in London on Primary Health Care Policy, Universal Health Coverage and Health Security in Nigeria: Optimising Global Opportunities and Partnership for Success.
Dr. Mimiko, whose tenure as governor of Ondo State witnessed massive reduction in infant and maternal mortality through the ‘Abiye Safe Motherhood’ programme, is to speak on “Improving Access to Health Services for All’ from his Ondo experience.
It will be recalled that the former governor, who is a leading advocate for universal healthcare in Africa, has since the expiration of his second term been involved in sharing his experience with major players in Universal Health Care at local and international fora.
He has had speaking engagements at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, CSIS in Washington, the Chatham House, London and the Scientific Conference of the Association of Feto-Maternal Specialists of Nigeria, AFEMSON, in Lagos among many others.
Mimiko will be joining high-level policymakers and government officials from Nigeria and global health partners and stakeholders from across the globe at the one-day event organized by the Chatham House Public Health Africa Policy Forum in conjunction with the Public Health Foundation of Nigeria and FPH UK.
Apart from speaking at the event, Mimiko will also be on hand to “discuss the current policy landscape and offer viable solutions and also build collaborative partnerships in order to harness successful improvements in the Nigerian health care sector,” with other invited participants.
