The Global Secretariat for WHO Collaborating Centres for Nursing and Midwifery

This network works toward the maximization of the contribution of nursing and midwifery in order to advance Health for All in partnership with WHO and its Member States, member centres, NGOs, and others interested in promoting the health of populations.

The network carries out advocacy and evidence based policy activities within the framework of WHA resolutions and the WHO programme of Work. It has an independent rotary secretariat currently based at the Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Health University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), Australia.

The 13th biennial meeting of the network was held on 5-6 June 2006 and was attended by representatives from 27 countries.
