By attempting to expand collective security to encompass public health and disease control, the new League of Nations Health Organization (LNHO) found itself facing the entrenched interests of OIHP, the Pan American Sanitary Bureau and the Comite international de la Croix Rouge (CICR) as well as responding to the newly formed American-backed League of Red Cross Societies (LRCS).
Discussions about these issues occurred in tandem with the creation of the United Nations and in 1946 a Technical Preparatory Committee was created to develop an international body which would subsume the work of OIHP and the League of Nations Health Organization.
