Before joining Chatham House in April 2016, Adebusuyi (Ade) Adeyemi was a senior programme lead in one of the largest NHS trusts in the UK.
As a result of his previous work, Ade was named a ‘rising star’ of the NHS by the leading UK publication Health Service Journal. He now also works at NHS England, the leading organisation of the British National Health Service.
At Chatham House, he is leading efforts to develop fellowship programmes that create effective public health policy change across Africa.
Ade is a member of the Davos World Economic Forum’s prestigious Global Shapers community of leaders, fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) and senior associate member of the Royal Society of Medicine. He also served on the National Executive Committee of the Fabian Society (Britain’s oldest political think-tank).
His main policy interests are health system reforms and advising government ministries on how to finance and implement national universal health coverage reforms.
Ade has just competed an executive MBA at HULT International Business School. He also holds an MPharm from University of Portsmouth and an MSc from King’s College London.
