Raj has been involved in non-profit healthcare management for more than 18 years, focusing on illness specific programmes for patients and their caregivers.
He has spearheaded a number of regional efforts in building awareness and creating advocacy, empowerment and access programmes with patient support organisations. While he holds a special interest in Rare Diseases, he has also been engaged in the areas of Lung Health, Blood Disorders, Cardiovascular Health and Diabetes.
Raj strongly believes in the power of the patient voice and has been actively encouraging a patient centric community by creating opportunities for groups to connect and collaborate, both locally and regionally. To achieve this, he works closely with patient support organisations in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, The Philippines, Vietnam and Hong Kong.
Currently, Raj is working on a regional project to collate and analyse evidence of the impact of rare disease on patients and caregivers.
With this, he hopes to bring about an improvement in the quality of life of patients and their caregivers.
