World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was elected on Tuesday to serve a second term. The Ethiopian official first took up the post in 2017, when he became the first African to hold it.

"During his first term, Dr. Tedros instituted a wide-ranging transformation of the WHO, aimed at increasing the Organization’s efficiency driving impact at country level to promote healthier lives, protect more people in emergencies and increase equitable access to health. He also guided WHO’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, outbreaks of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the health impacts of multiple other humanitarian crises," the organization stated.
