The first Indian to hold the position of a deputy director-general at World Health Organisation (WHO), Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, has now been given a post of Chief Scientist to head a newly created department to strengthen the scientific work under WHO.

WHO has recently constituted a new division which is being seen as a fifth pillar to strengthen the organisation’s core scientific work and ensure the quality and consistency of its norms and standards.

Talking to BusinessLine, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan confirmed: “Yes. I am now Chief Scientist, a newly created position and division.”

The new position, a component of WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus’s long-standing idea of ushering in reforms at the WHO, has specially been created for Swaminathan.
