Anil Soni Is The Ideal Choice As First WHO Foundation CEO
Soni has been associated with the health sector for decades now. Before becoming a part of this foundation he was the head of global infectious diseases at Viatris.
He has been working to expand healthcare facilities in places where people don’t get adequate health facilities. Soni has been working tirelessly in helping the people who are deprived of health care facilities.
Soni in a statement has revealed about how the ongoing pandemic has brought in havoc in the healthcare systems all across the globe. He said that because of the COVID-19 outbreak people are being denied of other health facilities.
Thus he aims to look into these matters as the CEO of the WHO Foundation. Therefore the foundation regards him as an ideal choice as the inaugural Chief of the foundation.
