WHO Wants to Lead?

The deadline for nominations for WHO’s next Director-General closed last night.
There were rumors of candidates slipping in under the wire but the WHO will not announce the official list of candidates until later today. Politico reports one possible candidate: Joe Thomas, executive director at Partners in Population and Development, an intergovernmental organization of 26 developing countries based in Bangladesh.
The 3 long-known candidates to succeed Margaret Chan are: Pakistan’s former health minister Sania Nishtar, Ethiopia’s Foreign Minister Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, and France’s former health and foreign minister Philippe Douste-Blazy.
