Title: Executive Director
I have been a primary care physician for over ten years in a market-based healthcare system in USA and as consumer as well in socialized medicine for the same period in Canada. Although born and grew up in Brunei, my entire graduate and post-graduate academia are trained in Canada, USA and England. I am a well-rounded scholar that continuously pushes the limits of education and research in the field of health, environment and society. For this reason, my professional and academic accolades include several doctorates of chiropractic medicine, natural medicine, and humanitarian service, and fellow and board certification in internal medicine, integrative medicine, pediatric, acupuncture, holistic healthcare and naturopathy. However, my anticipated accomplishment is a MPH in management of health systems from the University of Liverpool. My expertise is in integrating capitalism and socialism values to create sustainable organizational structure that can withstand the ‘winds’ of globalization. As a naturally born entrepreneur from the age of 16 years old I have been involved and excel in multi-tier marketing, direct bureaucratic management, and personal and group coaching for motivation, performance and wellness. They said my charismatic and transformational leadership are addictive. I have single-handed brought a ‘mom-and-pop’ business to a million dollar business in less than 10 years without debt obligations and profitable since day one. My achievements as a young entrepreneur are not an accident. It is through perseverance and courage that brings each failure closer to my success. Because of my predatory behaviors, I am ready to ‘pounce’ on the opportunity. I have great vision and the ability to see and think ‘outside the box’ provide the expert consultancy on market, human and economic reforms. I can secure vision and emerging missions, communicating ‘insights’ and ‘outlooks’ for best practices, and engineering an innovative compass for strategic placement of organization expansion and performance elevation. For example, my blog about autism received worldwide readership of over 10,000 subscribers in less than 3 years based on my strategic placement using power of social medias. Finally, my strengths have always been derived from the people and I shared my intense desire to equalize the broad social determinants of health. This has propelled us to create ORCD, a NGO for the people.

Conventional healthcare model is unsustainable in addressing the burden of chronic diseases, and this is a major reason for it. Our proposal is the creation of initial free Basic Preventative Health Package (BPHP) that has positive effects beyond the immediate users and is very cost-effective.

Our methodologies are based on sourcing international talents, conducting impact and feasibility evaluations, and empowerment of peripheral local actors. Using these experiences, we have come up with an idea to disrupt conventional healthcare model by providing an initial free Basic Preventative Health Package (BPHP) that has positive effects beyond the immediate users and is very cost-effective.
