Dr. Alexander Duncan MBE is a British General practitioner who spent six years in a village high up in the Wakhan Corridor of north-eastern Afghanistan. In December 2007 Alastair Leithead on BBC News 24 presented a half-hour feature about the corridor, focusing particularly on the work of expatriate Duncan, which provided a significant piece of extended media reporting from this inaccessible area.[1]

In January 2010 Duncan and his wife Eleanor were both awarded the MBE for their work in Afghanistan.[2] He was educated at Dulwich College and Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. He now lives in England with his four children and wife.
