Abimbola is based in Lagos, Nigeria working on understanding quality improvement in Lagos state. The two-year project is funded by the Bill &Melinda Gates Foundation and seeks to understand a quality improvement programme of maternal and newborn health services in Lagos state health facilities. It entails characterising the existing health intervention and subsequently investigating its implementation and mechanisms of impact. Additionally, it aims to analyse the health system costs associated with implementing the intervention while exploring the role of health system context in its implementation and outcomes.
Abimbola practised as a clinician between 2005 and 2010 before making a career shift from clinical medicine to public health. He obtained a Masters in International Health from Uppsala University, Sweden and a PhD in Tropical Medicine from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, United Kingdom.
