[Editorial] WHO launches new leadership, new priorities

WHO’s Director-General, Dr Tedros, last week launched his new cabinet to widespread acclaim. His mix of deputy and assistant director-generals is made up of nine women (two-thirds of his leadership team) with a geographical spread across 14 countries. India, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Barbados are all newly represented. The announcement also translated Tedros’s verbal promises into structural commitments. New priorities include Universal Health Coverage, climate change, and access to medicines.
