The Ministry of Health and Welfare announced that Park Min-soo, the Second Vice Minister of Health and Welfare, attended the 155th Executive Board meeting held in Geneva from June 3 to June 4. He participated as the executive board member for Korea in the World Health Organization (WHO).

 

The WHO Executive Board comprises 34 executive board members, each serving a three-year term. Currently, the Western Pacific region is represented by Korea, Brunei, Australia, China, and Micronesia.

 

During the 77th World Health Assembly, which took place from May 27 to June 1, 2024, 12 new executive board members, including Korea, were unanimously confirmed by member states. Park Min-soo was designated as Korea's executive board member.

 

This marks the eighth time Korea has been elected to the executive board since joining the WHO in 1949. Notably, this is the first instance of Korea rejoining the board just one year after the previous term ended. Korea will play a pivotal role in representing the Western Pacific region in WHO's decision-making processes until the end of its term in May 2027.

 

During the recent Executive Board meeting, Park Min-soo participated in discussions on key agenda items, including the outcomes of the 77th World Health Assembly, the results of the Programme, Budget, and Administration Committee, and the results of the Standing Committee on Health Emergency Preparedness and Response.

 

Park Min-soo stated, "As an executive board member for the next three years, Korea will contribute to strengthening the global health system by sharing our experiences and continuing to cooperate with other executive board members and member states."
