Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, Director General of the World Health Organisation (WHO), has received an honorary degree from the University of Edinburgh.

The head of the world’s leading public health agency received the title of doctor honoris causa for the significant contribution he has made to raise the profile of nurses and midwifes across the globe.

He received his honorary degree as part of the graduation ceremony for Nursing Studies students at the University’s historic McEwan Hall. 

Dr Tedros was elected at the Director General of WHO in July 2017, and was re-elected to a second term in May 2022 during the Seventy-Fifth World Health Assembly. He is the first person from WHO African Region to hold the globally-influential position.

Under the leadership of Dr Tedros, the member states of the World Health Assembly designated 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.

Despite the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the campaign underlined the work of nurses and midwives, highlighting the challenging conditions they face, and advocated for increased investments in the workforce as part of the WHO’s commitment to health for all.
