China Nominates Margaret Chan to Run for WHO Director-General's Post

Promising greater contribution to global health affairs, China today nominated Hong Kong's Margaret Chan to run for the post of Director-General of World Health Organisation (WHO).//

Chan currently serves as WHO Assistant Director-General for Communicable Diseases. The election for new Director- General will be in November this year.

The vacancy arose after the death of Dr Lee Jong-wook from South Korea in May this year.

China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said China has been an active player in international cooperation on health.

"China attaches great importance to the key role of the WHO and hopes to make greater contributions to the development of world health affairs," Liu was quoted as by Xinhua as saying.

He said Chan has profound medical knowledge and rich experience in public health management and has thorough understanding of WHO rules as well as challenges and opportunities for the global health system.

Chan has systematic and mature thinking of WHO's development, Liu said, adding, "We believe Madam Margaret Chan would help the organisation play a more active role in the health sector on the world stage if she were elected WHO Director-General." In 1994, Chan was appointed Director of Health, the first female director of Hong Kong. In 2003, Chan joined the WHO and worked as its Director of the Department of Protection of the Human Environment.
