As the international health authority, the World Health Organization (WHO) is
responsible for providing scientific and medical guidance to states in the interests of
their population’s health. In line with its Constitution, that guidance must be free
of all commercial interest. However, on 28 May 1959, the WHO signed an
agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which prevents
either organization from taking a public position on an issue which might harm the
interests of the other party (WHA 12-40). The IAEA was established in 1957 to
promote civil nuclear energy and in practice, in matters of radiation and health,
the WHO is subordinate to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
