Spotlight Series for PAHO/WHO Collaborating Centres

PAHO/WHO Collaborating Centres (CCs) are research institutes, hospitals, university departments, ministries or laboratories designated by the Director-General of WHO to carry out activities in support of the Organization’s programs. The CCs located in the Region of the Americas work primarily with PAHO’s technical areas.

PAHO launched an initiative in June 2019 to identify, among other information, the most significant results produced by the collaboration between the Organization and the CCs, from 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2019.

This initiative began with a survey carried out with all PAHO staff working with the CCs and, based on the research findings, this Spotlight Series was created to highlight these results and demonstrate how these collaborations are contributing to the realization of the Organization’s plans and programs and, ultimately, its priorities and mandates.

The following web notes are categorized according to the PAHO Strategic Plan 2014-2019 and are currently being recategorized based on the new Strategic Plan 2020-2025.
