New WHA Executive Board announced

28 Nov 2016 Bridie Taylor

Our voting members have spoken and the votes have been counted!

Following a fiercely contested election, we are delighted to announce our new Regional Executive Board Members for 2016-2018:

  • Africa Region: Kenneth Kabagambe (Uganda)
  • Americas Region: Su Wang (United States)
  • Eastern Mediterranean Region: Ammal Metwally (Egypt)
  • Europe Region: Ivana Dragojevic (Serbia)
  • South East Asia Region: Prof R.P. Shanmugam (India)
  • Western Pacific Region: Dee Lee (China)

Our Executive Board plays a vital role in the organisation’s governance and, crucially, provides representation for our patient groups on a regional level. The Board also encourages our members to work together, both nationally and regionally, to give our activities greater cohesion and strength.

We thank the outgoing board members for their invaluable contribution to our work and their commitment to the cause. Their input over the last two years has been key to the success of WHA’s activities. The next few years will be pivotal in the fight against viral hepatitis so we are greatly looking forward to working with our new board members.
