About Viktor

Based in Dubai, Viktor is the leader of our Healthcare Systems & Services work in the Middle East, where he helps clients reform and redesign national healthcare systems.

A medical doctor by training and a PhD in neurosurgery, he has helped pioneer health system transformations around the world, personally heading our efforts in the Gulf, East Africa, and the Mediterranean, and assisting on projects from North Africa to Asia. His clients have included national governments, nonprofit organizations, payors, and providers.

Viktor developed a consulting approach for examining the health systems of entire countries. This approach has been applied on a global basis and has aided improvements in regulation, financing, and health care delivery. In one African country, our involvement helped reduce maternal mortality rate sevenfold.

Viktor trained as a military doctor; he now coaches officers in the Swiss army. Viktor was a member of the Swiss National Judo Team from ages 15 to 20.
