Dr Mukesh Haikerwal (AO) re-elected to WMA

NEHTA's Head of Clinical Leadership and Stakeholder Management Dr Mukesh Haikerwal (AO) has been re-elected Chair of Council of the World Medical Association.

Dr Haikerwal, a Melbourne GP and former AMA president, was handed another two-year term at the association's council meeting last week.

The organisation was set up in the aftermath of World War II to protect clinical independence of the profession and promote ethical behaviour. Its membership has grown to cover 102 national medical associations.
