16 Dec, COPENHAGEN, Denmark-The United Nations’ health agency says its former director Halfdan T. Mahler has died. He was 93.

            The World Health Organization said Thursday that Mahler died Wednesday. He headed the agency’s Tuberculosis Unit in Geneva, Switzerland and served as its director-general from 1973 until 1988.

            In 2009, he became an honorary alumnus of the University of Copenhagen, from where he graduated in 1948. (AP)
