Peter Drobac (he/him)
Global health physician, social entrepreneur and Co-Founder of the University of Global Health Equity in Rwanda
A global health physician and social entrepreneur, Peter believes that all people – especially the poorest among us – deserve access to high quality healthcare. Working for 15 years with the global health and social justice organisation Partners In Health, he partnered with governments and communities to build health systems for residents of peri-urban slums in places such as Lima and Peru. In Rwanda, Peter played a key role in the transformation of the country’s healthcare system, which has fostered a doubling of life expectancy. He went on to co-found the University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) there. Working at the intersection of health, education and technology, UGHE aspires to train the next generation of global health leaders and to become a worldwide innovation hub for healthcare delivery. Peter is currently the Director of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School.
