Dr Felix Konotey-Ahulu is one of Ghana’s leading scientists (now living in the UK), and one of the world’s leading experts in sickle-cell anemia. He has lectured all around the world, and is the author of a major 643-page text, The Sickle Cell Disease Patient (Macmillan, 1991, ISBN 0333-­39239-6; Tetteh-A’Domeno Co., Watford, UK, ISBN 0-9515442-2-5, 1996).

This has been very favorably reviewed. For example, one leading American hematologist, Professor Helen Ranney MD, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, paid this compliment in Sickle Cell Disease, Editors H Abramson, JF Bertles, Doris Wethers (C Mosby Co, publishers St Louis) 1973, page 320:

There is no single clinical experience in the United States comparable to that of Dr Konotey-Ahulu.

This section of his book shows why sickle-cell anemia is not proof of protozoa-to-people evolution.

Felix Israel Domeno Konotey-Ahulu is married to Rosemary, and their marriage celebrant was the great physician turned expository preacher Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones. They now have three adult children and ten grandchildren.
