The Comptroller and Auditor General of India, CAG, Girish Chandra Murmu has been re-elected as the External Auditor of the World Health Organisation (WHO) for a four-year term from 2024 to 2027. The CAG is already holding this position in the WHO since 2019 for a four-year term from 2019 to 2023.

The election was held yesterday in the Seventy-sixth World Health Assembly in Geneva. The CAG was re-elected, with an overwhelming majority of 114 out of 156 votes in the first round of voting.

After the election, in his address to the World Health Assembly, Mr Murmu outlined his vision as an External Auditor for the WHO while emphasising the process improvement for better outcomes, transparency and a professional approach.

The office of the CAG said, the appointment is a recognition of its standing among the international community as well as its professionalism, high standards, global audit experience and strong national credentials.

This is the second major international audit assignment for the CAG this year following his selection for the post of External Auditor of the International Labour Organisation, earlier in March this year.
