Rubina Mumtaz was born in Nairobi, Kenya to immigrant Pakistani parents. She moved to Pakistan after high school and graduated with honors cum lauda from Khyber College of Dentistry, Peshawar. With nearly 20 years of experience tucked under her belt, Rubina wears many hats. Her passion for women’s rights kept her not only deeply involved with organizations that deal with handicapped children, women and minor prisoners but also led to a MPH majoring in Family and Community Health from the Harvard School of Public Health where her thesis was on oral health of homeless women in Boston. On her return to Pakistan in 2006-7, Rubina played a crucial role in introducing oral health into the health policy of Pakistan by setting up the National Task Force on Oral Health in the Federal Ministry of Health, Islamabad. Rubina heads the RMF Pakistan office, occasionally freelancing as a consultant for the HIV & AIDS program in Pakistan.
