“I have been working in WHO for 15 years, I have never felt proud of my organization as much as now”, said Hande Harmanci, head of the WHO representation in Azerbaijan at the online press conference of the Country Office of the World Health Organization (WHO), ONA reports
She said the organization has taken measures for prevention of the pandemic in a short time: “We shared these data with the whole world. The criticizing of such organizations is quite normal. We don’t feel offended because in fact we are working for those countries. Every year they check our work and budget. Every year the Health ministers of 194 member countries come together in Geneva and consider all technical and financial issues. The event will be held in online mode this year for the first time”.
Hande Harmanci also commented on the disseminated news regarding replacement of the head of the WHO: “In ordinary cases, the directors are appointed and dismissed through election. No country can dismiss the director elected by the whole world”.
