The World Health Organization has moved responsibility for intellectual property and innovation issues out of the direct control of the WHO director general and into the company of information, evidence and research, according to sources.

The WHO Public Health, Innovation and Intellectual Property (PHI) programme will move to the cluster on Information, Evidence and Research, the WHO press office confirmed today. It was previously in the director general's office.

PHI now answers to the assistant director-general on Information, Evidence and Research Marie-Paule Kieny.

The move takes effect on 1 November, according to an internal message from the director general to WHO staff circulated today by Knowledge Ecology International. The Information, Evidence and Research cluster will be renamed the Innovation, Information, Evidence and Research cluster in recognition of the "importance of innovation in improving health, and of collaboration to facilitate access to new technologies," the internal message said.
