Innovative Finance Director, The Financing Alliance for Health
Hafeez Ladha has worked across the public, private and social sectors, with a focus on emerging markets. Hafeez started his career managing communicable disease prevention clinical trials and strategic health planning across South Africa. He subsequently joined the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) in Tanzania to design, develop and implement a results-based financing program focused on maternal and child health services.
Hafeez then joined CHAI’s Global Vaccines Team overseeing vaccine packaging, distribution and delivery programs across Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Malawi and Ethiopia. Most recently Hafeez served as a Consultant and Case Team Leader out of Bain & Company’s Washington, DC office working across healthcare, tourism, food and beverage, senior living, textiles and hotels. His focus has been in Bain’s private equity practice which works with private equity funds and hedge funds to diligence and value potential acquisitions. Hafeez has also been responsible for selecting, scoping and staffing Bain’s pro bono global social impact projects.
Hafeez holds a BSc from McMaster University (Canada), an MPH from Columbia University and an MBA from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. In his free time, Hafeez enjoys traveling, discussing Canadian politics and performing as a rather unamusing stand up comic.
