Tedros Adhanom – Wikipedia

Tedros was born in Asmara, which at that time was in Ethiopia but is now the capital of Eritrea,[11] to Adhanom Gebreyesus and Melashu Weldegabir. His family originated from the Enderta awrajja of the province of Tigray. Tedros recalls that as a child he was very aware of the suffering and death caused by malaria.[12] His younger brother died at the age of 3 or 4 years, possibly of a preventable disease like measles, which Tedros often discusses as a defining experience in regards to the need for global healthcare.[5][13]

In 1986, Tedros received a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Asmara.[14] He studied at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and was awarded a Master of Science degree in immunology of infectious diseases from the University of London in 1992.[6][15][8] In 2000, he earned a Doctor of Philosophy in community health from the University of Nottingham for research on the effects of dams on malaria transmission in the Tigray region.[16]
