Tributes pour in for Babatunde Osotimehin

The head of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Nigeria’s Babatunde Osotimehin, has died suddenly at his home aged 68, the UNFPA has said.

In a statement, the UNFPA said:

This is a devastating loss for UNFPA and for the people, especially women, girls and youth, he dedicated his life to serving, starting from when he became a doctor in Nigeria.

Dr Osotimehin was bold and never afraid of a challenge and his strong leadership helped keep the health and rights of the world’s women and girls high on the global agenda.”
