“Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin was a remarkable leader and advocate for the health of women and girls, both as head of UNFPA and as the former Health Minister of Nigeria and the former Director-General of the National Agency for the Control of AIDS. Dr. Osotimehin was a critical part of the global FP2020 initiative to accelerate progress on universal access to sexual and reproductive health services and rights.
