[Perspectives] Agnès Buzyn: France’s Minister for Solidarity and Health
Curiously, a career in politics is of little interest to Agnès Buzyn, distinguished haematologist and Minister for Solidarités et de la Santé in France’s Government under Prime Minister Edouard Philippe and President Emmanuel Macron. “I would not have accepted this post in another government. It is a real shift in our democracy to try and get people working together across the political spectrum. I accepted this position as I am philosophically in line with President Macron, and I want to see scientific rationality brought into our political decision making”, Buzyn says.
