Ruth Katherina Martha Pfau (9 September 1929–10 August 2017) was a German–Pakistani Catholic nun of the Society of the Daughters of the Heart of Mary, and a physician. She moved from Germany to Pakistan in 1961 and devoted more than 55 years of her life to fighting leprosy in Pakistan. Pakistan honoured her with a range of awards including the Hilal-i-Pakistan, Hilal-i-Imtiaz, Nishan-i-Quaid-i-Azam, and the Sitara-i-Quaid-i-Azam.
Known as "Pakistan's Mother Teresa", Pfau contributed to the establishment of 157 leprosy clinics across Pakistan that treated over 56,780 people.
