UnitedHealth Group Inc. said Wednesday that its president has returned from a stint to co-lead an effort by the World Health Organization to accelerate the development of a Covid-19 vaccine.

In April, the company said Sir Andrew Witty would take a leave of absence following a request to serve as a global envoy for the WHO.

On Wednesday, the company said Mr. Witty, who also serves as chief executive of its Optum unit, would resume his duties immediately.
