Nigerian emerges president-elect of Medical Women Int’l

A Nigerian medical practitioner, Dr Eleanor Nwadinobi, has emerged President-Elect of the Medical Women International Association (MWIA) in the United States of America, a global association of all medical women doctors.

Spokesperson for the association, Dr Udochi Okoronkwo, who made this known in a statement on Monday in Abuja said that Nwadinobi became the first Nigerian to emerge as President-elect of the 100-year-old association, an indication that she would become the International President by 2022.

According to Okoronkwo, Nwadinobi was celebrated during the closing ceremony of the Centennial Congress of the MWIA, organised by American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) from July 25 to July 28 in New York.

She said the MWIA president-elect’s passion is seen in her commitment for more than 30 years,
during which she served in several capacities at the State, National and International levels.

Okoronkwo said that Nwadinobi joined the association in Nigeria through its Enugu branch in 1982 and rose to become President of the Enugu branch in 1997.

In 2005, the MWIA president-elect was elected as the National President of Medical Women Association of Nigeria and served on the Scientific, Ethics and Resolution Committee and chaired the Finance Committee.

Nwadinobi is a medical doctor and a health, gender and human rights expert with a European Union Masters in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA) from Venice, Italy.

Born in 1959, Nwadinobi is from Umuahia Local Government Area of Abia. She is a Fellow of the African Arts and Culture (FAAC), Founding Co-Chair, Steering Committee of Every Woman Treaty, a group calling for global treaty to end violence against women.

The new president-elect is also a co-country representative for the Working Group on Women Youth Peace and Security for UN Office for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWAS).

Over her 37-year career, she contributed to the Development Agenda in the last decade as Women, Peace and Security Expert with DFID.

MWIA has branches in over 80 countries.
