Dato Dr Musa Mohd Nordin

Dato Dr Musa Mohd Nordin holds a few impressive roles. A renowned paediatrician and neonatologist at the KPJ Damansara Specialist Hospital also lead several impact organisations.

In 2014, Dr Musa founded IMARET (IMAM Response & Relief Team), powered by the Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia (IMAM), providing humanitarian aid relief to any disaster and outreach programs to marginalised communities. Dr Musa also founded Rumah Solehah, a shelter for women and children living with HIV/AIDS and is an on-call paediatrician to OrphanCare, an NGO that set up Malaysia’s first baby hatch. In 2020, IMARET won the Star Golden Hearts Award.

He was also Honoured with the Outstanding Asian Paediatrician Award in 2012 by Asia Pacific Paediatric Association (APPA). Additionally, Dr Musa received the Lifetime Achievement award from the Federation of Islamic Medical Associations (FIMA) in Turkey. Currently, he remains IMARET’s advisor while actively involved in social work.

Impact for me means a few things. Firstly, to unflinchingly advocate for evidence-based public health at all times, pandemic or otherwise. It’s also to inspire young healthcare workers (HCW) and volunteers to be champions of sustainable change. It also means access to basic healthcare services, vaccinations and safe water supply to the underserved and impoverished communities and empowering them with health education.
