Dr Margaret Chan nominated to be WHO Director-General

8 NOVEMBER 2006 | GENEVA -- Dr Margaret Chan of China was nominated today by the Executive Board of the World Health Organization for the post of Director-General. The Director-General is WHO's chief technical and administrative officer.

The nomination will be submitted to the World Health Assembly, which will meet for a one-day special session on Thursday, 9 November to appoint the next Director-General.

The procedures for the current nomination and election process were decided following the sudden death of Dr LEE Jong-wook, WHO Director-General, on 22 May 2006. At its meeting on 23 May, the WHO Executive Board agreed on an "accelerated process" for electing a Director-General.

On Monday the Executive Board, chaired by Dr Fernando Antezana Araníbar of Bolivia, selected a short list of five candidates. Yesterday the Board interviewed the five candidates and today selected Dr Margaret Chan as its nominee.

The WHO Executive Board is composed of 34 Members who are technically qualified in the field of health. The main functions of the Board are to give effect to the decisions and policies of the World Health Assembly, to advise it and generally to facilitate its work.

The countries represented on the current Executive Board are: Afghanistan, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bhutan, Bolivia, Brazil, China, Denmark, Djibouti, El Salvador, Iraq, Jamaica, Japan, Kenya, Latvia, Lesotho, Liberia, Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mali, Mexico, Namibia, Portugal, Romania, Rwanda, Singapore, Slovenia, Sri Lanka, Tonga, Thailand, Turkey and the United States of America.

Dr Anders Nordström, appointed by the Executive Board as Acting Director-General of WHO in May, will continue in this role until a new Director-General takes office.

スケートリンク

先月から私の通勤路にあるNatural History Museumではクリスマスイルミネーションがスタートしました。けっこう大きな木にイルミネーションが灯り、きれい。

で、その下をなにやら工事をしているなあと思っていたら、どうやらスケートリンクが出来る模様。これ、毎年のことなんでしょうか。写真を撮ろうと思っていつも忘れるのですが、けっこうすてきかも。いつからなんだろー。照明もつけられてるので、夜まで営業かも。帰宅時が楽しみになるかもしれません。

しかーし、あぁぁぁ、忙しい。今週は所用であと2日しかない。やること山盛り。なんかすべてが中途半端で終わってしまうような気もする。。。やばい。頑張らねば。
