Classifications

Collaborating Centres for the WHO Family of International Classifications (WHO-FIC)

WHO works with a network of Collaborating Centres to develop, disseminate, implement and update the WHO Family of International Classifications to support national and international health information systems, statistics and evidence.

The Collaborating Centres have been established to assist WHO and users with the development and implementation of WHO-FIC classifications. It is important that users bring to the attention of the respective Centre any significant problems they might encounter in the use of WHO-FIC classifications. Proposals for amendments or additions to the classifications should be directed, in the first instance, to the relevant Centre.
