Professor Phyllis Kanki Visits APIN Abuja Campus!

We have The one and only Professor Phyllis Kanki with us in Abuja!

Professor Phyllis Kanki

APIN’s history cannot be told without mentioning Prof. Kanki. As a Professor at Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health, she received the award from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to implement AIDS Prevention Initiatives in Nigeria (APIN). This set the ball rolling for the establishment of APIN as we now know it.

From L to R: Deputy CEO Programs (Dr. Jay Osi Samuels), Prof. Phyllis Kanki, CEO (Dr. Prosper Okonkwo) and Deputy CEO Operations (Mr. Niyi Olaofin)

She was in the country to receive an Honorary Doctorate Degree of Science from the University of Lagos , and we are so pleased that she made time to visit us in Abuja. She took time out to see some of our project sites starting with Phis3 Project and APIN Medical lab & Diagnostics during her visit.
