The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, spoke by phone on Wednesday with Israel’s new health minister, Yuli Edelstein.

In a tweet, Tedros wrote, “Good call with Yuli Edelstein. I congratulated him on his new appointment. We discussed strengthening WHO-Israel collaboration.”

Tedros also noted that Edelstein — a former Knesset speaker — had agreed to promote the “Health for All” resolution adapted by the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) last year.
