Abstract
EJIL: Talk!; In this blog post, it is argued that the WHO is an organisation whose “constitution” already entails many of the principles, but also powers it takes for it to gain in political legitimacy. As we have come to realise, COVID-19 has the ability to reveal the weaknesses not only of physical bodies, but also of political ones. And it has revealed how much in international politics depends on us: it is not only a right, but a common responsibility of the WHO (States) peoples to constitute our world health government together.
