Lighthouse Global Health Initiative | Founder
Adebisi Adenipekun is the founder of Lighthouse Global Health Initiative (LGHI), a growing initiative that envisions a world where vulnerable populations (especially adolescents, women and rural/slum dwellers) lead healthy and productive lives. Through LGHI’s platform, Adebisi and his team have implemented public health campaigns which include the Rural Contraceptives Access Campaign, Rural Empowerment and Health Promotion Project for rural dwellers, Your Health First Campaign targeted at empowering domestic workers, and SaveTheCervix, which aims to reduce the burden of cervical cancer in Nigeria.
Adebisi was invited to join the National Technical Working Group on Adolescent Health and Development in Nigeria in 2013, and his public health contribution was underscored by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health/Bill & Melinda Gates Institute’s scholarship to attend the third International Conference on Family Planning in 2013. Adebisi’s Family Planning Voices (FP Voices) interview was featured on both International Youth Day 2016 and World Contraception Day. He was a youth speaker at the 4th Women Deliver Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, and a non-state actor delegate to the 2017 World Health Assembly. Adebisi is a Women Deliver Young Leader, a 2016 World Contraception Day Ambassador, and a 2017 UNLEASH SDG Talents gold award winner (health category).
Adebisi trained as a pharmacist at Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria, and is currently a Master of Public Health candidate at University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
