Introduction

Dr Onajin-Obembe is a Consultant Anaesthesiologist at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital and Assistant Professor of Anaesthesiology at the College of Health Sciences of the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria. She was head of department of anaesthesiology (2008 – 2010). She leads the anaesthesia team for paediatric, maxillofacial and ear, nose and throat surgeries.

Her roles:
President, Nigerian Society of Anaesthetists (2014 – 2018).
President, Africa Regional Section of the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) 2013 – 2017.
WFSA Council Member (2016 – 2020).
Bellagio Commissioner, Lancet Commission on Global Surgery (2015).
Permanent Council Secretary/Director, Global Alliance for Surgical, Obstetric, Trauma and Anaesthesia Care (G4 Alliance) 2018 - 2020.

She graduated from the Medical College of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. She is a Fellow of the West African College of Surgeons having completed her residency in anaesthesia at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Nigeria. She obtained her international experience in anaesthesia at the Hillingdon Hospital, Middlesex, UK and regional experience as a Fellow of the West African Health Organization for professional and linguistic exchange programme within the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

Dr. Onajin-Obembe completed her MBA (International Hospital and Healthcare) Management at the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, Germany. Her interests include strategic leadership and change management and she is rounding up her executive PhD program at the International School of Management, Paris. Her interest in change management was triggered by the anaesthesia workforce crisis and the inequity observed in healthcare services. She believes that a well-planned alignment of both the medical curriculum and postgraduate programmes to the changing landscape of healthcare can play a strategic role in re-directing the future of global health systems.

She is happily married to her friend, Bunmi Obembe (FNSC) for 30 years and together they have three sons and two daughters, a son-in-law and a granddaughter.
