Bahrain PM to get WHO global honour


The World Health Organisation (WHO) said it will honour the Premier for his visionary leadership that has made Bahrain’s health services a role model for other countries.



HRH Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa will become the first world leader to be bestowed such an honour by the UN’s health watchdog.

He will be honoured at a ceremony at the UN Palace in Geneva on Monday in the presence of heads of states and governments as well as health ministers from the WHO’s 194 member states.

WHO chief Dr Tidros Adhanom Gibressus has also invited the Premier to attend the 72nd World Health Assembly.

HRH Prince Khalifa was chosen by the WHO for the honour after a careful follow-up of the progress of the health sector in Bahrain, which deserves to be a role model for other countries of the world, stated Dr Gibressus in his invitation.

The honour reflects the WHO’s recognition of the role that the Premier has played in activating WHO’s efforts aimed at achieving its objectives, missions and functions, including providing leadership on issues critical to health;



establishing partnerships that require joint action and norm-setting, promotion and monitoring of their implementation; building sustainable institutional capacity, monitoring health status and assessing health trends, it added.
