Tedros re-elected as head of WHO for a second term after becoming household name during Covid crisis

World Health Organisation chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has been re-elected to serve a second five-year term as director-general of the global health body.

He won a secret ballot at the 75th World Health Assembly in Geneva as the sole candidate in what was a foregone conclusion. 

An overwhelming majority of the WHO’s 194 member states voted for Dr Tedros to continue in his role as the UN health agency’s director-general. 

Dr Tedros shook hands with delegates from various countries and received a standing ovation from the assembly in Geneva. 

‘This is overwhelming,’ he said in his acceptance speech to the delegates. ‘I’m really grateful and humbled for your confidence and trust.’ 

The role can only be reappointed once, and Dr Tedros begins his new mandate officially on August 16.
