WHO’s Tedros rescinds appointment of Mugabe as ‘goodwill ambassador’

WHO’s Tedros rescinds appointment of Mugabe as ‘goodwill ambassador’
October 23, 2017

Amid widespread concern, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, PhD, MSc, rescinded his appointment of Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe as a “goodwill ambassador” for the world health agency.

News of the controversial appointment of Mugabe as WHO ambassador for noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in Africa was met with condemnation from all corners of the global health community. Reacting to criticism, Tedros announced that he was “rethinking” his decision “in light of WHO values.” The former Ethiopian minister of foreign affairs — who was elected in May as the first African to lead WHO — eventually released a statement saying that he was retracting the appointment.
