Collaborating Centres

WHO collaborating centres are key institutions with relevant expertise distributed throughout the world. They represent a valuable resource and an extended and integral arm of WHO's capacity to implement its mandated work. The WHO collaborating centres are a highly valued mechanism of cooperation in which relevant institutions are recognized by WHO as assisting the Organization in implementing its mandated work by supporting the achievement of its planned strategic objectives at the regional and global levels; enhancing the scientific validity of its global health work; and developing and strengthening institutional capacity in countries and regions.

NGOs in official relations with WHO

WHO is supporting collaboration on local, national, regional and international levels in order to influence changes towards achieving the highest level of health care. The partnership could be based on working or official relations with WHO but also through strategic and informal collaborations as in teamwork, partnership, alliance-building and cooperation.
