Professor (now emeritus) in Family Planning and Reproductive Health, UCL
JOHN GUILLEBAUD [‘GIL-BOE’] spent his early life in East Africa. While a 2nd year medical student at St John’s Cambridge, a lecture on the multiple risks of relentless population growth led logically to higher degrees in both surgery and gynaecology. Thereafter he performed over 4000 vasectomies and a similar number of fertility-regulating procedures for women, along with educational and research activities and over 300 publications, including two ‘best-selling’ textbooks of contraception. His UCL Chair and title Professor (now emeritus) in Family Planning and Reproductive Health was in 1993 the first in the world to be awarded to a clinical gynaecologist.
