About the Author

Dr. Abraham Idokoko is a ‘social entrepreneur’. Trained as an expert in Population health, diplomacy and strategic studies, he has chosen to be a passionate exponent of a socio-political paradigm shift that engenders the optimal wellbeing & healthy development of people especially, children, young persons, women and the elderly living in disadvantaged circumstances and under-served communities in the developing world.

He has demonstrated fervour in walking his talks that “action changes things” by being a sustainable human development advocate and a verifiable social change agent, in his solemn belief that creating and seflessly adding value to people is the essence and true meaning of living/life.

Many refer to Abraham as a physician & clinical philanthropist, a volunteer cum laude. He is among the few globally competitive humans that parade themselves as proudly made in Nigeria, entrenching the depth of his patriotic zeal for his home country. Those rhetoric are verifiably true of him having being trained at the prestigious College of Medicine of the University of Lagos, and the School of Postgraduate Studies; the Postgraduate College of Obafemi Awolowo University; and of course, the Postgraduate School of the University of Ibadan; in addition to specialist medical education at the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria and the West African College of Physicians.

He is a member of many professional bodies including the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs[NIIA]. Over the years, he has  initiated, participated-in, facilitated, managed and pioneered several clinical philanthropy and community development efforts but, he is just beginning…

Abraham agrees with Virchow (1849) in that medicine, as a discipline, is a social science and that politics is medicine applied on a large scale. His writings are part of a concerted effort to share this health-wedge-interplay philosophy among the many hearts of gold across the globe. He is of the view that putting sane minds in charge of the power politics of nations is the most effective pill for population health challenges. And that continually engaging this minds to spur them to action on our common ideals is essential to achieving sustainable development for all people.

Today, he is the convener of Citizens Alliance, Nigeria, and founder of GoldenHearts® Internationalè , an institute working assiduously to bridge the gaps in essential healthcare and education access for persons living in disadvantaged circumstances in sub-Sahara Africa and the developing world.!
