Previously, as Associate Fellow of the Nigeria Leadership Initiative and Next Generation Leader at the McCain Institute for International Leadership in Washington DC, United States of America, he engaged with top policy makers and international diplomats to push his agenda on access to quality health care for women. Adura is also an ardent #HeForShe campaigner and has used platforms like the sixtieth session of the Commission on the Status of Women. His firm belief is that “No woman should die while trying to bring forth another life”.

Adura is also passionate about quality education and equality for all. Previously, Adura served as a Board Member at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. At the time, he was the first student representative and youngest person to be appointed to the Board of Trustees in the School’s 115-year history. He used this platform to bridge the gap between students and senior management and push for equality, diversity and inclusion within the rank and file of the institution. He also pushed this course as President of the Public Health Society during his time at the University of Sheffield.

Adura is an advocate for women’s rights, especially as it relates to access to quality health care. Leveraging evidence generated from his research, Adura campaigns for system-wide change in many African countries.
