Two Others and Ethiopian Erstwhile Health Minister, to Contest for WHO Director-General

Latest world health news as the Ethiopian former Health Minister, two others to contest for WHO Director-General
Trending health news as the World Health Organization executive board has announced the final three candidates for director-general of the global health agency. The announcement came after a closed-door interview of the five candidates nominated by member states.
The three finalists are Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, 51, from Ethiopia, Sania Nishtar, 53, from Pakistan, and David Nabarro, 67, from the United Kingdom.
All 194 member states will participate in the final vote, which is set to
happen at the World Health Assembly in May and the winner will Dr. Margaret Chan. She has served the agency for two terms with each term lasting five years.

According to the scientists reports that the position is guaranteed for one five-year term and comes with an around $200,000 paycheck. But the winner will also have to contend with recent criticism of the agency, from experts who believe WHO responded too slowly to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
Commenting on the unpredictability of the election outcome, Suerie Moon of the Graduate Institute of International pand Development Studies in Geneva, told STAT that nobody exactly knows or can predict the outcome. 
“I do think the outcome is going to be unpredictable,”
“Everybody has their hunch. But I haven’t spoken to a single person who thinks they know or will admit that they know” she said.
