WHO collaborating centres on reproductive health in the WHO European Region

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. The European Region is fortunate to have 14 of these collaborating centres dedicated to research into sexual and reproductive health.
