Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

WHO Director-General to visit Tonga

Dr Tedros met with Tongan leaders, health workers and community members to explore how WHO and the Tonga Government can continue to work together in close partnership.

The visit is historic as for the first time ever, the Kingdom, is visited by a WHO Director-General.

Also visiting the country will be WHO’s Chief Nursing Officer (CNO), Elizabeth Iro. Prior to taking the role of CNO in 2017, Iro served as the Cook Islands Secretary of Health.
