Ahmed Abu Bakr is social entrepreneur in the health tech space in Bangladesh. He is co-founder and COO at Jeeon, an award-winning model of ICT-enabled healthcare delivery. Currently, Jeeon is working on (i) upskilling informal healthcare providers in rural Bangladesh through e-learning (ii) connecting rural patients to qualified doctors through telemedicine and (iii) connecting the rural populace in Bangladesh to products and services of other organisations.

Jeeon’s vision is to become a systems integrator in the rural healthcare space, so as to improve public health outcomes, by using the power of information technologies to drive efficiency and create transparency.
