It is more an issue with understanding the usual implementations
of the MPI Fortran bindings, namely, having to include mpif.h in
ALL procedures that wish to make use of the MPI variables.

The OP would be better advised to consult some MPI documentation.

Most MPI documentation would:

a) mention the recommendation of the use of mpif.h
b) tell one that MPI_Comm_World and bretheren in mpif.h are
     Fortran parameters

You won't find that info by consulting some fortran programming
