Hakeem OnasanyaMaster of Public Policy

I am a doctor who is devoted to attaining universal health coverage through an appropriate health policy framework. I have certifications in health financing, health economics and insurance from the World Health Organization, the World Bank and the Chartered Insurance Institute (UK) respectively. I also serve as the secretary on a clinical board where we work to ensure that affordable and quality healthcare is available to the underserved.

I started out as a dentist at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital. Subsequently, I worked at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital where I undertook a 10 years’ retrospective analysis on the use of health insurance among patients who visited the facility. Before the MPP, I worked as team lead in national provider relations at a health insurance company where we work with the National Health Insurance Scheme to increase the health insurance coverage in Nigeria using technology and telemedicine.
