Dr Chan, Shut-wah Kenneth was elected to the board of directors of Medecins Sans Frontieres Hong Kong in August 2019 by the regional association members and appointed as the Vice-President and thereafter as the President since 2020.

A very experienced psychiatrist and public health specialist based in Hong Kong, Dr Kenneth has been serving the MSF Hong Kong board for a number of years. As the President, he is responsible to lead the good governance, ethical compliance, risk management, duty of care, financial accountability, as well as oversee the strategic direction of the MSF Hong Kong regional office and its branch offices in Greater China and Southeast Asia to support the movement’s social mission.  

Born and raised in Hong Kong, he has dedicated many years to serving the public healthcare system as well as volunteering work with not-for-profit organisations. He worked with the Department of Health and Centre for Health Protection in preventing and controlling communicable diseases in the community, leading research and surveillance of HIV/AIDS incidence and burden to inform public health strategies for prevention and control, managing clinical teams for border control measures, to name a few. 

His volunteerism spirit led him to work with MSF in Angola during the civil war in 2002 and during the 2003 SARS outbreak response in Hong Kong.  He’s been serving the MSF Hong Kong board at various capacities since 2006, from being a Board of Directorate to Vice-President and President. 

From June 2013 to 2019, he went back to clinical practice at hospitals of Castle Peak and Kwai Chung. At present, he is an Associate Consultant of United Christian Hospital and an honorary clinical assistant professor at prestigious faculties of medicine in Hong Kong such as The Chinese University of Hong Kong and The University of Hong Kong.

Jenny Tung
Executive Director, MSF Hong Kong

Jenny Tung is the first Hong Konger and woman executive director of Medecins Sans Frontieres Hong Kong, a regional office overseeing Greater China and Southeast Asia offices, from field staff recruitment & deployment, public communications and advocacy, resources mobilisation and operations support. Jenny assumed the Executive Director post in November 2020 but has been working for the organisation more than eight years ago.

Since 2013, Jenny held various management and executive leadership roles such as Regional Director of Southeast, East Asia and Pacific; Director of Regional Development: and Interim Executive Director of MSF HK. Throughout her career in MSF, she led major initiatives highlighting the importance of Asia, and making MSF more visible in the region to create diverse and greater impact to impartial medical humanitarian action. 

Jenny’s leadership qualities and strategic partnership development skills have taken her to establish MSF presence in strategic locations such as Singapore, known as a regional hub for humanitarian and emergency response, as well as the establishment of MSF in Taipei to connect closer with our Taiwanese supporters. 

Her commitment to the organisation led her to see first-hand the appalling living conditions of refugees and asylum seekers at Lesbos refugee camp in Greece, Shatila camp in Lebanon, as well the situation of the minority migrants in France. She went to the Democratic Republic of Congo and witnessed the challenges field teams faced in responding to measles outbreak in difficult settings, and the impact of the dedicated HIV/AIDS hospital run by MSF at the capital Kinshasa to treat people living with the disease. She also visited the town of Bar Elias, bordering Syria, where MSF currently runs a hospital handling elective surgeries and wound-care management.  

Jenny has 17 years of work experience in the corporate sector, in Hong Kong and in Shanghai, managing big and multicultural teams across the Asia-Pacific region.
