An unwavering commitment to public health

Tanwir Ahmad will return to India with the knowledge and best practices to strengthen its public health system.

Working in India's poorest communities on grassroots health issues, Tanwir Ahmad developed an unwavering commitment to public health. He worked for UNICEF, CARE India and Public Health Resource Network India before joining Aga Khan Rural Support Program India as manager of health. Wanting to create greater impact at the system level, Ahmad decided to return to school to study health policy and management. He is attending the Heller School's International Health Policy and Management program on a Ford Foundation International Fellowship. "World-class faculty, robust teaching methodology, and peers from across the globe create a unique learning environment," he says. "I will be returning to India with the knowledge and best practices to significantly strengthen its public health system."
