Dr KK Aggarwal
Dr Soumya Swaminathan, Director General ICMR has been appointed as Deputy Director General at the World Health Organization (WHO). As part of the senior leadership team at WHO, she will be one of the two Deputy Director Generals of WHO. Dr Soumya Swaminathan will be Deputy Director-General for Programmes.
This is yet another feather in the cap of a brilliant career richly strewn with numerous awards and achievements. A trained pediatrician, Dr Soumya Swaminathan has more than three decades years of experience in clinical care, research and translating those findings into programs.
She is the first Indian to hold this prestigious position... indeed a happy and a proud moment not only for the medical fraternity but also for the entire nation.
Time has come for the WHO to focus on India and we now hope that the health problems of India would be looked into and tackled on priority and also how India can achieve the global health targets as defined in the Sustainable Development Goals.
