Divine Ikenwilo

On the 27th November 2015 our dear friend and colleague Divine Chinedu Ikenwilo passed away after an illness.

Having completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Nigeria and his Masters at the University of Cape Town, Divine joined the Health Economics Research Unit (HERU) in February 2002 as a Research Fellow. He very quickly became part of our HERU ‘family’ and for almost 14 years we in HERU had the pleasure of seeing his smile daily. Divine was a much respected academic, working on ‘Workforce’ issues in HERU. In 2010 he was awarded his PhD by the University of Aberdeen.

Those who knew Divine will remember him as a true, gentle and very kind friend and colleague who was always smiling. To many in HERU Divine was ‘Simply Divine’.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Divine’s wife, two young sons, and all his family and friends.
