“The UN Foundation has long been a catalytic player in the global health community, spearheading innovative new platforms and partnerships to advance international cooperation on health,” Ouma reacted to his appointment.

“I look forward to joining the Foundation at this pivotal moment for global health, as we work toward a future where everyone can realize their right to good health and well-being,” he added.

The UN Foundation has prioritized global health since its establishment in 1998. This has included bringing the UN and partners together through new platforms for collective action, such as the Measles and Rubella Partnership.

It has also raised funds that have been used to help different individuals in different countries.
