Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus was re-elected to serve a second five-year-term as Director-General of the World Health Organization, WHO.
First elected in 2017, his re-election was met with wide and loud applause from ministers and others at the 75th World Health Assembly in Geneva recently.
Dr Ghebreyesus’ new mandate officially commences on August 16 this year as the Director-General of the WHO.
#WHA75 concluded today. I am deeply grateful for, and humbled by, the support, trust and confidence of the Member States. Visiting your countries and meeting your people is an inspiration to me, it reminds me of what is at stake, & why the work of @WHO is so vital. #HealthForAll pic.twitter.com/57zDgaYL6C
