Poor choice of examples. The IMF and World Bank have not solved any problems and have in fact caused much worse problems than they've tried to solve; aid from the IMF and World Bank is almost always tied to requirements of policy changes that prove disastrous in the long run, and cuase the countries receiving the aid to need even more aid later.
The benefit of the ITU is questionable at best. I've worked for a company involved in ITU matters, so I've seen the sausage factory in operation.
I don't know enough about the history of the WHO, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
In general, expecting the UN to solve problems is not a good bet. It's more likely to exacerbate problems and create new problems.
