UN Resident Coordinator Roy Trivedy together with UNCT bids farewell to WHO Representative Dr Rajesh Pandav after a successful nine years in Timor-Leste - five of which he served in the capacity of WHO Representative.
With a very heavy heart, we bid Dr Rajesh Pandav adieu. We wish him all the success in his new assignment in Nepal.
As he takes charge in his new duty station, we in Timor-Leste will forever cherish and look up to his leadership, camaraderie and his dynamism, which was equally admired by the people of the country and Government of Timor-Leste. We wish him the very best!
Rajesh has made significant contributions to the UN achievements in Timor-Leste over the past nine years. Through WHO programmes, coordination, technical support, and interventions and partnerships with several stakeholders, he has - either directly or indirectly - influenced the lives of innumerable in the country.
I have no doubt whatsoever that many colleagues have benefited from his vast knowledge, professional expertise, cultural sensitivity, networks, words of wisdom and guidance to overcome challenges and make progress as well as contributions within the UN family as well as in the country.
At this stage, and on behalf of all of us, I wish Rajesh the very best of peace and success in his future endeavours.
