Network of WHO CCs in Occupational Health

The Global Network of Collaborating Centres in Occupational Health consists of about sixty-five institutes and organizations spread across the six WHO regions. Through the Occupational Health Programme, these centres support WHO in implementing the objectives of the Global Plan of Action on Workers' Health, which was endorsed by the World Health Assembly in 2007.

The WHO Network 2009-2012 Workplan was developed to promote intensive activity towards addressing the Global Plan of Action. The approximately 200 current projects of the 2009-2012 Workplan are organized into five groups, each focused on one of the five Objectives of the Global Plan of Action for Workers’ Health.
