Speaker Bio

Dr. Alexander Ng is the Deputy Director and China Country Office Head of Health and Innovation at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He leads a team that works to build health partnerships with key stakeholders in China, including the Chinese government, private sector and NGOs. The goal is to identify, develop and deliver high-quality, low-cost health products (drugs, vaccines, biologics, diagnostics) for use in developing countries to tackle endemic diseases and other urgent health needs. Alex’s team also works with local partners to design and deliver programs that address domestic health challenges such as tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and poverty. 

Alex joined the foundation in 2015 after 9 years at McKinsey & Co., where he was an Associate Partner and co-led McKinsey’s Healthcare Practice and Corporate Finance Practice in Greater China, where he served public, private and social sector clients on strategy, health system reform, operations transformation and investments. 

Alex completed his undergraduate and medical studies at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and a postgraduate diploma in Health Informatics at the University of Otago, New Zealand. From 2004 to 2005 he served as Chief Resident at Auckland’s Middlemore Hospital – a tertiary referral hospital for South Pacific, before completing an MPH in Health Policy and Management at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Since 2010, Alex has been an Honorary Professor with the Faculty of Medicine, University of Hong Kong and has been a Council Member of Hong Kong Council of Smoking and Health since 2012.
