Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin is currently leading a Malaysian delegation to the 72nd World Health Organisation Western Pacific Region Committee Meeting (WPRCM) in Himeji, Japan, which is expected to end this Friday (29 October).

What Khairy perhaps did not see coming is his appointment as the Vice President of the upcoming 75th World Health Assembly which will take place from 22 – 28 May 2022 in Geneva, Switzerland. World Health Organization (WHO) Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam & Singapore took to their Twitter account and revealed that Khairy was unanimously elected by WHO Western Pacific Member States.

Who

The 75th World Health Assembly will be attended by 194 member states.

Following this, Khairy himself also took to his Twitter account and express his gratitude for nominating and electing him to carry the duty as a Vice President on the coming assembly.
