Elvis survived numerous bouts of malaria while growing up in Nigeria. He knows how devastating it can be when a child doesn’t receive early treatment, and he knows that the right treatment saves lives.
Now a UK-based emergency medicine physician, Elvis has been involved in several global health policy programmes to end malaria, including establishing a Malaria Policy Hub in Africa.
In April 2019, he worked with footballer-turned-activist David Beckham to produce a multilingual PSA using artificial intelligence to spread awareness in various languages. Elvis is also a youth ambassador for Malaria No More UK.
