Dr Anuschka Coovadia

Dr Anuschka Coovadia is a member of the Global KPMG Centre for Universal Health Coverage

KPMG in South Africa

She advises a number of development funds and boards, which focus on the health, education and social services sectors. The African Healthcare Centre of Excellence at KPMG, operates throughout the continent, offering advisory services to governments, policy makers, donors, funders, hospital groups, pharmaceutical manufacturers, medical professionals, private equity and health IT operations. Recently, she presented at the World Economic Forum in Davos and worked on global health projects, such as advising the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Health in the Bahamas on the implementation of their NHI. “I have a passion for innovation, strategy, entrepreneurship and development. I love working with people who are courageous and constantly bring fresh ideas to the table,” she says. “We need this if we’re to move forward, expand access to healthcare and address the critical stumbling blocks that hinder the delivery of better quality, patient-centric care. I enjoy moving across all the different components of the healthcare ecosystem - learning from people who have deep vertical experience and capabilities; and then applying those skills more broadly, in the interest of creating a better healthcare system for all Africans.”
