The WHA is the policy decision-making body of the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Germany's Angela Merkel, Korea's Moon Jae-in and UN  secretary-general Antonio Guterres will also take part.

Ramaphosa's office added, “The president will use this opportunity to call on the international community and all member states to unite in global solidarity to tackle this global disease and to work together to develop solutions.”
