Datuk Seri Dr. Haji Dzulkefly bin Ahmad (Jawi: ذلكفلي بن احمد; born 1 January 1956) is a Malaysian politician and serves in the Cabinet of Malaysia as the Minister of Health since 21 May 2018. He is currently the Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for Kuala Selangor for the second time since 2018. He presently is a member of the Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah), a component party in Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition.
Dzulkefly previously held the same parliamentary seat of Kuala Selangor for the first time from 2008 until 2013 but under Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS).
Dzulkefly holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Birmingham and a master's degree from the University of Surrey. He later completed his doctorate in toxicology from the Imperial College (St. Mary's Hospital Medical School) in 1993.
Dzulkefly made his debut in the 2004 election, contesting the Rembau parliamentary seat in Negeri Sembilan for PAS but lost. He was elected to Parliament in the 2008 election, winning the seat of Kuala Selangor, which had been held by the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition. In January 2010, he publicly supported the controversial decision of the Malaysian High Court to allow a Catholic publication to use the term "Allah".
Dzulkefly was a prominent member of the moderate, or "Erdogan" (after the Turkish politician), faction of PAS. He lost his parliamentary seat in the 2013 election, tallying 460 votes fewer than the Barisan Nasional candidate Irmohizam Ibrahim. Despite the loss, he was re-elected to the party's central committee. He was re-elected again in the 2018 election as an AMANAH candidate.
