Iffat Zafar

Dr. Iffat Zafar is the Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer for Sehat Kahani, a telemedicine startup based in Pakistan that connects over 5,000 home-based female doctors to over three million patients who can’t access a doctor in person. A Commonwealth scholar, Elevate Prize Winner, and Good Fund Fellow, she has been recognized as a global health leader for her digital health innovation and advocacy work. 

Iffat has been a winner of several awards and accelerators, including the GSMA Accelerator, MIT Enterprise Forum Pakistan, Seedstars Regional Event and “The best in Healthcare” at GIST (Global Innovation through Science and Technology).

Iffat has also been a prominent speaker at prestigious national and international platforms such as Davos, World Bank, Mobile World Congress Barcelona, TEDxZiauddin, and Gender Smart Impacting Summit London, to name a few.

I want to leave behind a better world; a world where healthcare access is universal, where every individual regardless of their income bracket, their color and their geography accesses the best state of the art healthcare services, a world which is not divided by one's place in society.
