PAHO/WHO Collaborating Centre Spotlight Series 

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

PAHO launched an initiative in June 2019 to identify, among other information, the most significant deliverables produced by the collaboration between PAHO/WHO and the institution for a period of four years (1 January 2015 – 31 December 2019). This initiative began with a survey that was conducted with all PAHO staff working with CCs and from the survey’s findings, this Spotlight Series was created to highlight these deliverables and demonstrate how this collaborations is contributing to the achievement of the Organization’s plans and programs, and ultimately to its priorities and mandates.

The following Webnotes of the Spotlight Series are categorized according to PAHO’s Strategic Plan 2014-2019.
In the future, they will be categorized according to PAHO’s new Strategic Plan 2020-2025.
