The constitutional economics of the World Health Organization

by Eric C. Ip
in Health Economics, Policy and Law

In 2020, the World Health Organization found itself at the centre of the COVID-19 pandemic and in the middle of the Sino-American geopolitical tug-of-war. This paper traces the discordance between the Constitution’s stated purposes and the actual track record of the WHO not back to its organisational culture nor to weak leadership but to the design of the Constitution itself.

Global health law and ethics relate to a diverse range of issues that include right to global health, the human right of access to basic medical services, national and coordinated international responses to and the management of global health hazards (including responses to emergent infections, epidemics, antimicrobial resistance (AMR), addiction and substance abuse), the socio-legal management of and responses to risky behaviours (including sexually transmitted diseases, addiction and substance abuse), and transnational health-related research or research involving international organisations. Our scholars actively engage with these and other issues in global health law and ethics through their research, as well as knowledge exchange, policy and service commitments.
