UK’s candidate for WHO Director-General praises Motsoaledi

CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies had a conversation with Dr David Nabarro, UK’s candidate for World Health Organisation Director-General who is currently in South Africa.

The new Director-General will be voted for on May 26 at the Seventieth World Health Assembly by member states and will take office on July 1, 2017.

Kammies asked Nabarro why he thinks he should be voted for as the next Director-General of WHO.

I have been a medical doctor for more than 40 years ...so i look at health and health care in a broad holistic way. I have worked in more than 50 countries of which 10 are in Africa, providing health care and teaching health workers. Also I have been a senior official in United Nation System working with politicians on difficult health issues.

I will be meeting the South African Health Minister and officials as part of my campaign to being the next Director-General.

Nabarro commended Aaron Motsoaledi for being an excellent Health Minister who is committed to the health of the people. He says he is the only Health Minister who still makes time to see patients.

Aaron Motsoaledi is the Health Minister who is not scared of addressing very difficult health issues.
