Margaret Chan is the Director-General of the World Health Organization. Chan has previously served as Director of Health of Hong Kong Government (1994-2003), representative of the WHO Director-General for Pandemic Influenza and WHO Assistant Director-General for Communicable Diseases (2003-2006).

What determines success at the organization such as the WHO?  

Have a thick skin. You must to stay true to your goals and not get pulled into many different directions by different interest groups. 

Of course as a professional, you must have technical competence and have to know what you're doing. You have to adhere to the highest standards of medical science, medical evidence, to make the best decisions. You have to stay neutral and true to science and your professional training. 

 

Of course the problem is that you have to make decisions based on insufficient information, and you must make the best possible decisions. This is when you are pulled into many different directions by different interest groups, and you must stay neutral to your principles and to the highest standards of medical evidence.

The second most important rule of success in the organization such as the World Health Organization is to be politically savvy. At the WHO, I am responsible to the countries for making the best decision. At the same time, countries are pulling us into many different directions. I must stay true to the technical competence and to the highest standards of science. 

Oh, and when it comes to you as a person, of course you can be a real person. You can cry. I was called the "crying DG" because I always had my family near me that was always supporting me. I followed my husband to his studies in Canada, and he has supported me emotionally ever since. Families matter a great deal, and provide emotional relief that you need at a place like this.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just
your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
However imagine if you added some great visuals
or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is
excellent but with images and video clips, this website could
definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Amazing blog!

Popular actor/ TV host and youth icon, Rannvijay
Singh has joined hands with The Spartan Poker, country's leading and most
popular poker gaming portal as their first brand ambassador.


Poker as a game has thrived in India and has certainly swept the youth off their feet, and several Bollywood celebrities too have been caught
up in the tide. Poker has always been a highly popular activity in Bollywood,
with stars barely needing any reason to bring out the cards.
Rannvijay being an avid poker player himself actively takes part in various poker tournaments and has also won quite a few hands at the table.


Launched in the year 2014, the online poker gaming portal
has become the most trustworthy online gaming portal in India among patrons and Poker lovers.

With a vast variety of Poker tournaments and game offerings
the online Poker portal founded by Poker Badshah, Amin Rozani, has been the hotspot for Poker aficionados
since its inception. The Association of Spartan Poker and Rannvijay Singh have been in talks since a really long time which is the very reason they
finally decided to make it publically official.
