Collaborating centres on child and adolescent health

Collaborating centres form part of an institutional collaborative network set up by WHO to support its technical work. They provide services to WHO at the country, regional and global levels, and are involved in technical cooperation for national health development. WHO collaborating centres are required to help strengthen country resources and national health development via information sharing, service provision, research and training.
