Usman Munir is a Centennial Fellow and a second year student in the Harvard Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) program.  Usman has lived in the Middle East (Saudi Arabia and the UAE), Pakistan and the UK, each roughly representing a third of his life. Usman is most passionate about improving the performance of health systems in low and middle income countries through innovative public-private partnerships. His passion comes from his experience living in Pakistan, where the poor do not have access to high quality, affordable healthcare, and the UK, where everyone has. Prior to his doctoral studies, Usman advised global pharmaceutical companies on pricing and reimbursement of new medicines. More recently, Usman worked as a risk management consultant, quantifying longevity and pandemic risk for leading life and health insurers. He is currently consulting with the World Bank on the Global Financing Facility. Outside of work, Usman enjoys scuba diving, hiking. He also loves watching BBC documentaries.
