Hadassah Medical Organization

Director of the World Health Organization praises Hadassah's pediatric hemato-oncology ward.

As a preeminent medical institution in the Middle East, Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem hosts visits by prominent people from international organizations and countries around the world. 

One such visitor in March was Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), who expressed his amazement at “the staff's impressive devotion to the patients, as well as the continuous thought which goes into treatment.”

An Ethiopian political, academic, and public health expert, Dr. Ghebreyesusis is a well-known researcher on malaria and served as Minister of Health for the Government of Ethiopia from 2005 to 2012. During his tenure he improved access to health services and hired 40,000 female health workers, helping to reduce the infant mortality rate in the country.
