-

Published on: 05/24/2022 – 17:53 The first African to lead the World Health Organization (WHO), the Ethiopian Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was reappointed on Tuesday for a second term. At the head of the WHO since July 1, 2017, he notably had to manage the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, with calls that often went unheeded. The betting was almost done before the vote by secret ballot at the World Assembly held on Tuesday May 24 in Geneva, Doctor Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus being the only candidate in the running. First African to head the World Health Organization Health (WHO), at 57 years old Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus therefore retains his position for a second five-year term. A malaria specialist, graduate in immunology and doctor of community health, Dr. Minister of Health and head of diplomacy of his country. His face has been made familiar around the world by the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, one of his main concerns. A personal story linked to the war He who poses as a man of peace was marked by a childhood immersed in war but also the conflicts in Ukraine, Yemen, Syria and Ethiopia during his first term. pandemics, war shakes and destroys the foundations on which previously stable societies rested” and conflicts leave “psychological scars that can take years or decades to heal”, Dr Tedros recently asserted, for whom “the peace is essential to health”. These scars are as many sufferings that he himself endured. “I am a child of war,” the head of the WHO, very moved, had launched on Sunday at the opening of the World Health Assembly. “The sound of gunshots and shells whistling in the air, the smell of smoke after the impact, the tracer bullets in the night sky, the fear, the pain, the loss – these things stayed with me throughout my life, because I was in the middle of the war when I was very young,” he said. Years later, with war resurging in Ethiopia in 1998, “that fear” returned when it was his children’s turn to “hide in a bunker”. And while the Ethiopian region of Tigray, his native region, has been plagued by conflict since the end of 2020, he admits to feeling “the same pain again”. His childhood was also marked by the death of a brother, for lack of medication.Hated by Donald TrumpWarm, Dr. Tedros is highly appreciated, especially by Africans, for having allowed the gaze of the international community, especially during the pandemic , turns more towards this continent. The main criticism came from his own country, with Addis Ababa accusing him of “abusing his position” after his comments on the humanitarian situation in Tigray. Democrat Joe Biden’s arrival at the House Blanche, who brought the United States back into the fold of the WHO, gave him a second wind, while he was constantly attacked by Donald Trump, who had cut off supplies to the organization he accused of mismanaging the Covid-19 pandemic and being too close to Beijing. Dr. Tedros’ more critical tone towards China, which he believes is not transparent enough about the origin of the pandemic, has earned him some reprimands of Beijing, which however supports its renewal. A scandal of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo perpetrated by employees of its organization – among other humanitarian workers – earned it a volley of green wood twice from several dozen countries members, who considered his reaction too soft e and too slow. But the pandemic has shown that its calls often go unheeded. After a first mandate marked by Covid-19, which exposed the shortcomings of the WHO and the global health system, Dr Tedros will have to win the bet of strengthening the UN agency in particular to better prevent and manage diseases. future epidemics.
