World Health Organization Agreement

4.4. Promote and strengthen, in particular in developing countries, HPV education, HPV operationalisation and effective co-operation between public health and the animal/veterinary sector. Home > About Us > Key Texts > Cooperation Agreement The WHO-IAEA Agreement follows the example of agreements between WHO and the United Nations or other international organizations. These agreements establish a general framework for the organisations concerned to design and develop their cooperation in accordance with their programmes and priorities and do not contain detailed commitments. For example, it is common for organizations to agree to consult each other on matters of common interest or in which one of the parties may have a substantial interest. However, as stated in Article 1 of the WHO-IAEA Convention, such an obligation in no way implies that an organization is placed under the authority of the others in order to compromise its independence and responsibilities within the framework of its respective constitutional mandates. The World Health Organization (hereinafter referred to as WHO) and the International Office of Epizootics (hereinafter referred to as OIE) wish to coordinate their efforts to promote and improve veterinary public health (HPV) and food safety and to this end, and to this end, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recently been announced by several journalists and others about its relations with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). There were concerns that WHO would not be able to act independently on issues of exposure to radioactive substances and human health, as it is bound by the 1959 agreement between the two agencies. This concern is unfounded. 3.3. Appropriate arrangements shall be made between the Director-General of WHO and the Director-General of the OIE for the participation of WHO and OIE in other non-private meetings convened under their respective auspices on matters in which the other Party has an interest; this applies in particular to meetings that result in the definition of norms and standards. With regard to depleted uranium, WHO is currently completing a general assessment of the possible health risks arising from exposure to depleted uranium. As requested at the WHO Executive Board meeting in January 2001, the WHO Secretariat will report to all its Member States on its findings and recommendations on depleted uranium at the next World Health Assembly in mid-May.

In addition, WHO conducted field missions to Kosovo and Iraq to investigate the health situation and provide the necessary professional advice to the relevant health authorities. These activities of the Organization are in no way hindered by the WHO/IAEA Agreement. In 2019, WHO issued: 1,980 consultant contracts with individual consultants for a total value of $80,583,599.00; 105 AW with individual contractors for a total value of USD 4,061,425.54; 33 agreements (NG) with individual contractors with a total value of USD 2,012,284.35; and 81 general external services with individual contractors for a total value of USD 2,506,995.24.
