PAHO/WHO Collaborating Centres
WHO Collaborating Centres are institutions such as universities, hospitals, research institutes,
academies or ministries which have been designated to carry out activities in support of the Organization’s programs.
There are now over 800 Collaborating Centres globally working with WHO on areas such as nursing, occupational health, communicable diseases, chronic diseases, emergency response and eHealth, among others.
All WHO Collaborating Centres located in the Region of the Americas are known as Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization Collaborating Centres (PAHO/WHO CCs) since PAHO serves as a WHO Regional Office.
The Region of the Americas is home to over 180 active WHO Collaborating Centres, which are referred to as PAHO/WHO Collaborating Centres (PAHO/WHO CCs) located in several countries of the Region.
The activities of each PAHO/WHO CC are aligned with the outcomes of the respective WHO and PAHO Program & Budget.
PAHO/WHO CCs are encouraged to form working relationships with other Centres and national institutions recognized by WHO through the formation of collaboration networks or incorporation into existing ones.
The Spotlight Series highlights the deliverables of PAHO/WHO Collaborating Centres and how their activities contribute to the achievement of the Organization’s priorities and mandates.
