By Staff Reporter
Health and Child Care Minister, Dr David Parirenyatwa, has been elected president of the World Health Assembly (WHA).
He was elected at the 71st World Health Organisation (WHO) which began in Geneva Switzerland on Monday, and will run until the 26th of this month.
Zimbabwe is chairing this year’s Assembly with the delegation being led by Dr Parirenyatwa.
Meanwhile United Nations secretary general, Antonio Gueterres, says investment in health is key, for countries to provide basic health services for their citizens, since health is a fundamental human right.
Officially opening the Assembly, Mr Gueterres said Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) will only be achieved when health financing has been prioritised, ensuring that services are accessible to individuals.
