Objective

The process for electing the next director-general of the World Health
Organization (WHO) has started. The six candidates nominated by their
governments are undergoing a process of scrutiny by WHO member states and
its executive board prior to the election of a new director-general by the
World Health Assembly in May 2017.

 

This event is an opportunity for non-governmental stakeholders – medical
professionals, academics, non- governmental organizations and the private
sector – to hear from the candidates and put questions to them.
