Mimiko To Deliver Keynote Address In Washington, Today

 

The immediate past Governor of Ondo state, Dr Olusegun Mimiko will be delivering a keynote address at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) public conference on health, in Washington, DC, USA, today.

According to the Senior Vice President and Director, CSIS Global Health Policy Center,  Stephen Morrison, Mimiko is expected to share his experience on the state of Nigeria’s health sector and efforts adopted by his government in reducing infant and maternal mortality in Ondo state with an audience including U.S. government officials, health policy professionals, academics, and business representatives from across the world.

The conference will take place at CSIS headquarters in Washington, DC, on March 14, 2017.

The CSIS is an independent, bipartisan think tank that has advised the United States government on its global health, security, and foreign assistance policies for more than five decades.

The statement reads “the work of the Global Health Policy Center informs the U.S. government on how to fund and implement international health programs more effectively.

“As a new administration takes office in Washington, we believe it will be a timely moment to remind U.S. policymakers of Nigeria’s importance and highlight health care as a sector where progress can be accelerated by new partnerships and modes of engagement.”

The former Ondo governor is to share his experience in wide ranging areas of health with policy makers from across the world at the event.
