Dr Sam Prince



Dr Sam Prince is the Founder and Chair of One Disease. He is a humanitarian, philanthropist, entrepreneur and medical doctor. His success in both business and aid work stems from his ability to clearly visualise gaps in environments. Inspired by his mentor Professor Frank Bowden who was responsible for the elimination of Donovanosis from remote Indigenous communities in Australia, Sam started One Disease with a similar mission;  to eliminate preventable disease from remote Indigenous communities, one disease at a time.

In 2012, Sam was awarded the 'Young Australian of the Year, ACT' title in recognition for his work at One Disease. 

He is one of 14 members in the InnovationXchange program, headed by The Hon Julie Bishop MP which discusses novel approaches in business, civil society, philanthropy and academia to drive innovation across Australia’s aid program. 


In addition to One Disease, Sam has established a number of other organisations. He is the founder of Zambrero, Mexican with a mission: a healthy quick-service restaurant franchise as well as humanitarian enterprise committed to tackling world hunger; Mejico, a modern market-fresh Mexican restaurant & tequila bar; INDU, a fresh, contemporary Indian restaurant with a focus on the fragrant food of coastal India, and Florey, a revolusionary healthcare service, bringing together health advocacy, a comfortable space, technology and education to improve the experience of visiting a general practice.
