The WECPHC is one of four specialized centres of the European Regional Office. It works as an extension of the Division of Health Systems and Public Health and in collaboration with other technical units in Copenhagen and country offices across the Region.

The Centre’s work aligns to four pillars of activity:

  • knowledge synthesis;
  • country support;
  • policy analysis; and
  • alliances and networking.
