Olumide is a Nigeria-based Public Health Physician with over 16 years of experience working in HIV/AIDS, adolescent health, reproductive health, epidemiology of cancer and infectious disease, cancer control, research, education, management, and consultancy. He was a consultant/investigator to the CLIP-Nigeria trial, a multi-million-dollar project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Saving Lives at Birth (through Grand Challenges Canada). The project aimed to address the excess maternal and perinatal mortality derived from the failure to identify and rapidly manage pre-eclampsia and eclampsia at the community level in LMICs. I have been a member of several professional and management groups. Also, Olumide is involved in capacity development, bespoke training, critical review, and overall project management. His research and consultancy have culminated in several peer-reviewed publications.
