Moreover, although criticisms of this approach continue to emerge (Davis 2012), the philosophical underpinnings of functionalism – that the provision of certain services can be extricated from compromising political interference, thereby averting conflict – remains a guiding force in contemporary IO practice (Hale and Held 2012). In the specific context of health, Mitrany’s proposal for technocratic, apolitical IOs to deliver specific services corresponded with two other developments that had been growing in popularity: the concept of health as a civil right and the rise of social medicine.

Put simply another way, in line with Mitrany’s Functional Theory of International Organization that suggested form should follow function (Mitrany 1945), each IO’s institutional design should have distinct characteristics that reflect the nature of the work the IO was created to undertake (Beigbeder 1998). It should not therefore be unexpected that several features of the WHO’s institutional design reflect the IO’s specific health focus. For instance, the Constitution identifies that delegates attending the WHA must ‘be chosen from among persons most qualified by their technical competence in the field of health, preferably representing the national health administration of the member’ (Article 11 – WHO 2005a, p.

The logical conclusion to be drawn is that the WHO’s member states are very aware of the effects that placing such limitations on the organization’s capabilities engender. The extent of the WHO’s authority and autonomy has thus potentially been best captured by Sharp (1947, p. 520) when he states: In realistic terms it may be said that WHO will be able to move toward its central objective only insofar as it can prod governments and private groups to provide services and initiate programmes they might not otherwise undertake.
