WHO Elections

The new head of the World Health Organization will be elected Tuesday. The leading candidate is Peter Piot, who's headed UNAIDS for many years. Whoever is chosen will direct a vastly more important force in world health than it has been in years past, as epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other diseases continue to grow. Brenda Wilson reports.
