 Los Centros Colaboradores en el Area de Desarrollo Sostenible y Salud Ambiental de la OPS/OMS 

Uno de los objetivos fundamentales de la Organización Panamericana de la Salud/Organización Mundial de la Salud (OPS/OMS) es el desarrollo nacional para el logro sostenible de metas de salud pública de orden nacional, regional y mundial.

A través de los años la cooperación técnica de la OPS/OMS con sus Estados Miembros ha mantenido en forma significativa una participación activa con instituciones nacionales.  En este sentido, ha sido crucial la plena movilización e inclusión de las capacidades nacionales para apoyar a los  países de la Región de las Américas en adoptar políticas y planes integrales para cumplir los planes de trabajo de la OPS y los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio (ODM) y otros logrando así un efectivo cumplimiento en los aspectos relacionados con la salud.

Los Centros Colaboradores de la OMS (CC-OMS) así como las Instituciones Nacionales Asociadas con la OPS para la Cooperación Técnica son socios esenciales en la estrategia de la OPS/OMS destinada a desarrollar la capacidad institucional en los países y regiones, a fortalecer los recursos de información, investigación, evaluación, vigilancia, construcción de capacidades y formación,  así como el desarrollo de recursos humanos, capacitación, servicios y asesoramiento.

Desde 1949 la OMS cuenta con una política sobre Centros Colaboradores cuya función esencial es el apoyo directo a los programas de OMS.  Los Centros Colaboradores designados oficialmente por la OMS (CC-OMS) son un mecanismo de cooperación sumamente valioso para la ejecución de las actividades y las prioridades programáticas establecidas, especialmente en los aspectos científicos y técnicos de apoyo a la cooperación técnica (http://www.who.int/collaboratingcentres/es)

Siguiendo las políticas establecidas por la OMS para la selección y designación oficial de los Centros Colaboradores de la OMS (CC-OMS), un departamento o unidad específica dentro de una institución puede llegar a ser designada por el Director-General a formar parte de una red internacional de colaboración para llevar a cabo actividades específicas en apoyo a los programas de la Organización a todo nivel. 

Actualmente la OMS cuenta con aproximadamente 813 Centros Colaboradores que apoyan la ejecución de las actividades y las prioridades programáticas establecidas. Alrededor de 190 de estos Centros Colaboradores están en la Región de las Américas apoyando a más de 36 países.  (http://www.who.int/collaboratingcentres/database/en
