[Correspondence] Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is the best candidate for WHO DG

As Sally Davies has already pointed out,1 the World Health Assembly will shortly meet to elect the next Director-General (DG) of WHO. Three candidates (Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus [Ethiopia], Sania Nishtar [Pakistan], and David Nabarro [UK]) were selected by the WHO Executive Board in January, 2017, for the final stage of the election. All three are well qualified and experienced in their own ways and all fulfil WHO’s established criteria.1 So the important issue for the world’s ministers of health, meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, will be deciding which of the three candidates could best lead the needed reforms at WHO while also protecting and enhancing the health of the world’s people.
