THE FELLOW

Dr. Iffat Aga story begins with her grandparents immigration to Pakistan, she was born into a middle income expatriate Pakistani family. She grew up seeking to prove herself to the world, her family and never feeling like enough. Her mother’s side of the family was richer and considered themselves elite, while on her father's side the family was conservative and viewed a woman’s place in the kitchen. Dr. Iffat Aga got into medical university but never felt like any of her family members, she was not rich enough and she had determination to be more than just a woman in the kitchen. After graduating she started working in a leading global Pharmaceutical where  unfortunately she ended up losing a baby in a premature birth. The next time she conceived, She quit her job. This is where Dr. Iffat realized the importance of flexible work options for women.  Fast forward to a few years ahead Dr. Iffat then joined her fellow co-founders who were working on an amazing idea of connecting home based female physicians to communities in need and she fell in love with the whole concept. Thus Sehat Kahani was born.
