Collaborating Centres are key institutions with relevant expertise distributed throughout the world. They represent a valuable resource as an extended and integral arm of the Organization’s capacity to implement its mandated work.
The Region of the Americas is home to 189 active WHO Collaborating Centres (as of 12 February 2020), 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 current WHO Programme Budget. PAHO ensures that they are also aligned with the current 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.
