The rules and services of intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) such as the World Health Organization, the World Bank, and even the World Trade Organization affect health outcomes around the globe. Health-related IGOs have grown more numerous and more powerful but also more contested. This chapter explores the role of health-related IGOs in two main sections. The first section discusses the power of IGOs in global health, focusing on their capacity for autonomous action and their authority vis-à-vis states. The second section explores dynamics of change in and between health-related IGOs. The aim of the chapter is to outline productive cross-fertilization between the global health and IGO literatures.
