Dr. Junaid Nabi is an internationally recognized expert on health care strategy, global health policy, and digital transformation in health. As an immigrant, he has a unique perspective on living between nations, which has enabled him to develop a deep understanding of the unmet needs of different patient populations and design innovative solutions for seemingly intractable strategic problems across international health care delivery systems.

As a senior researcher at Harvard Business School, he helps health care executives recognize how to employ competitive strategies to transform patient care delivery, improve clinical outcomes, and promote health equity. He previously led large-scale national projects to investigate system-level factors that lead to racial disparities in cancer care, evaluate the economic impact of innovative medical technologies, and manage the integration of novel digital decision support tools into electronic medical records.

Dr. Nabi has dedicated his career to building global collaborations to improve access to health care and eliminate disparities. He is a New Voices Senior Fellow at the Aspen Institute and a Millennium Fellow at the Atlantic Council—both in Washington, D.C., where he writes about global health, health-tech, and global affairs. He serves as a Visiting Professor on healthcare strategy for prominent international institutions and as a member of the Working Group on Regulatory Considerations for Digital Health and Innovation at the World Health Organization and Expert Network on the Future of Health at the World Economic Forum.

Dr. Junaid Nabi is a frequent keynote speaker on digital medicine, innovations in health, and health care transformation. He has delivered keynote addresses at MIT Hacking Medicine, Aspen Ideas Festival, and HXD Conference. His academic writings have appeared in prominent peer-reviewed medical journals, including The Lancet, the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA), and the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) Catalyst. He is a frequent opinion writer for prominent international media outlets, including NPR, Scientific American, The Hill, Devex, and Project Syndicate.

In early 2020, he served as an Emerging Leaders Fellow at the United Nations Association of the United States, coordinating one of the first global lectures on systems-based public health response to COVID. Dr. Nabi is a recipient of several awards for his leadership in research and humanitarian work—including 40 Under 40 Leaders in Health, Red Crescent Society Volunteer Medal, Aspen Spotlight Health Scholar, and STAT Wunderkind.
