The Chairman of the Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede has been recognised with the ‘Leadership and Vision for Global Health Transformation’ award for his commitment to improving healthcare outcomes across Africa.

A statement said that award was given at the Global Business Coalition for Health’s ‘Celebrate’ in New York amid the backdrop of UNGA78.

The statement said, GBCHealth is a not-for-profit organisation that had been working with businesses, governments, NGOs and entrepreneurs since 1997, to improve health equity worldwide, impacting millions of people in its fight against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria and through its focus on maternal, child and adolescent health.

In response to the evolving development landscape and a growing emphasis on supporting local organisations, GBCHealth announced its decision to conclude its US operations by the end of 2023.

This strategic shift aligned with a vision for fully African-led efforts to drive sustainable improvements in global health.

In his acceptance speech, Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede applauded GBCHealth for its work in ensuring better global health outcomes, and emphasised the importance of collaborative efforts between philanthropic organisations and global health advocates to drive meaningful change in healthcare access and quality.

During the event, five organisations were presented with the Future United Awards for their work to address some of the world’s most pressing health challenges, the statement said.

Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, a public sector-focused philanthropic organisation, was a key sponsor of the event.
