Chinese President Xi Jinping’s wife, Peng Liyuan, is one of the World Health Organization’s three goodwill ambassadors.
That certainly does not appear to be the case.
Scholar Gordon Chang has warned that China’s policy “is incompatible with our system. We are unfortunately going to have to reverse course and disengage from China to protect ourselves – to reduce our vulnerability to an extremely dangerous actor.”
Peng Liyuan is also a Goodwill Ambassador for tuberculosis and AIDS since 2011, American Military News reported Wednesday. She was appointed by former WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan. Incumbent WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus renewed her two-year term in 2019.
