May 23, 2017 (GENEVA) – The Roll Back Malaria Partnership congratulates H.E. Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on his appointment as Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO). Dr Tedros is a proven reformer, who brings decades of experience, a fresh perspective and unparalleled diplomatic skills. With experience at national level as Federal Minister of Health and subsequently Foreign Minister, and at international level as Chair of the Global Fund Board, Dr Tedros has the technical expertise and the breadth of perspective to lead WHO in the SDG era. We are confident that he will ensure that health, and health determinants, remain at the top of the multi-sectoral development agenda.
