Dr Mohd Lutfi Fadil bin Lokman graduated from National University of Malaysia in 2013 with the Tun Dr Ismail Award for best student achievements. He is currently a House Officer in Hospital Sungai Buloh.
While he was in medical school, he participated actively in the Society of Malaysian Medical Association’s Medical Students (SMMAMS) and was the chairman for the term 2011-2012. With a global view in mind, Dr Lutfi hope to launch Malaysian Medical students onto the world stage. He did so by registering SMMAMS and pitching Malaysia as a permanent member under the International Federation of Medical Students Organization (IFMSA). He went on to organize the IFMSA Asia Pacific Regional Meeting 2012 in Penang which became a huge success. He was also awarded the Best International Speaker for IFMSA Global Health debate in the event.
During his years of study in Indonesia, regular involvements in voluntary works made him realize the disparity of healthcare towards the poor. In his final year as a medical student, an outdoor game accident almost robbed him of his ability to walk and left a permanent tinnitus in his left ear. This buzzing sound serve as a constant reminder and motivated him to start up a non-governmental organization known as Hospital Beyond Boundaries (HBB). HBB was founded with the aim to build hospitals where they are needed most. As of now, the pilot project in Phnom Penh, Cambodia is to be ready in mid-2015. As the executive director of HBB, he seeks to build an impact in global health in the South-east Asia region and collaborate with WHO in the future.
Upon Graduation, he interned in the Department of Public Health and Environment of WHO where he was heavily involved in global health projects in various part of the world. With these achievements and notably, his immense experience in public speaking, we believe that he would be a perfect addition to tackle issues in the forum.
